Two day solo trip (June 7 and 8). Great views from Roger's Ledge (side trip), the Horn and between Mt. Cabot Cabin and Bunnell Notch Trail. Slept at the Unknown Pond tentsite, almost empty except for the people and dogs mentioned. Went for a swim in the morning, the water was warmish. A few people here and there, not many. Plenty of water sources.
Notice that work is being done at the Cabot Cabin and it will not be available for several weeks/ months. A team from the Histori Corps is doing major repairs.
