Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Brushing would be helpful on lower part of Unknown Pond Trail. It would have been a full car wash if leaves were wet. There was a stream running down the trail just north of Cabot. Needs a water bar.

Comments
Comments: Decided to do the Mill Brook route again to avoid crowds and because I haven’t done it in 17 years. It is a much quieter way to tag Cabot, although just a bit harder. Had to skip doing the Horn this time due to time constraints. Saw about a dozen people, all on Kilkenny Ridge. All were very friendly and very respectful about social distancing!
