Date of Hike
Date of Hike: Friday, August 7, 2020
Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: One other vehicle near the bridge when I arrived at 8:30, only mine when I returned. There were two vehicles at the lot at the end of the road. The trailhead is about 4.5 miles from RT 110 on Mill Brook Road, right at a bridge. Beyond the bridge and around the corner the road ends at a turnaround and parking area. Looks as if there's space for several vehicles. You can also park at the shoulder near the bridge where there is room to pull over. I think on very busy days parking might be a problem. Mill Brook Road is well-maintained.

Comments
Comments: I hiked an out-and-back from the parking on Mill Brook Road. Some of the other hikers I spoke to on KRT were hiking the loop that included Cabot and begins at the hatchery. Unknown Pond is a beautiful spot! The views from The Horn are spectacular, not much for views from The Bulge. I'm working on my 52s, and both The Horn and The Bulge are on the 100 Highest in NH.
