Comments: Nice hike to the 🦉 and then bushwhacked north of summit towards Lincoln Brook Trail close to 13 falls tensite. Twin Brook trail was an excellent trail to hike up to Frost Trail. I met only 9 hikers today. *Blackpond Bushwhack isn't quite as pronounced as it was with many leaves covering the path.
