Comments: After our sunrise hike on Waumbek, made sense to go grab Cabot. We parked on the side of the road on York Pond Road, at the trailhead. Quite a few cars when we arrived around 8:30am, but still plenty of room. The beginning of Bunnell Notch Trail is really overgrown, but did not cause any issues. Passed a few hikers on our way up (one was on his descent), saw a few at the summit, and on our descent, it was getting really busy at the Cabin. As we continued down, there was a lot of trail traffic heading up. This was such a beautiful hike, really liked these trails! It was still cloudy so no views at the viewpoint, but as always, still a great day! Finished around 1pm and the parking was full.
