Comments
Comments: We were planning on going up Unknown Pond trail, but .6 miles in we came to the first stream, it was very wide and pretty deep, no more ice bridges here. We ended up going up York Pond to Bunnell Notch, to Kilkenny Ridge. Two of us wore snowshoes going up on Saturday, husband had on trail crampons, he didn't post hole once. We probably didn't need snowshoes, the trail is pretty packed down. Spent the night at Cabot Cabin, came back same route on Sunday April 8th, no need for snow shoes, light traction is all we needed.
***The cabin is really nice, it's just too bad that some have the need to deface the walls, there are plenty of pads in there to write down your messages. Guessing they are the same ones that didn't feel like taking their trash out with them. We took the trash, but couldn't get the frozen cigarette butts out of the sink.
