Comments
Comments: Excellent hike of Cabot from the north. Beautiful forest ascent with plenty of fiddlehead and trillium blooms. Moose poop seemed to make up half the trail! Stubbornly barebooted to Cabot summit, used micros for the Cabot descent until the col between Cabot and Bulge. The views from The Horn and the shores of Unknown Pond are the highlights.
