Comments
Comments: The weather really cooperated, which made this a great hike. We never saw a town line sign at 1.0 mile. Unknown Pond is a lovely spot. We decide to visit The Horn last, which worked out well. At The Horn, we squeezed through the big crack between two rocks on the left, then went way to the back to get up the summit rock the easiest way.
