Comments
Comments: The Black Pond bushwhack and Brutus bushwhack probably saved a couple of miles. We weren't rushing and took over a half hour on top eating lunch and drinking a beer. Total round-trip with breaks was 7 hrs, 15 minutes. But those bushwhacks were probably the reason why. The Black Pond bushwhack is at the end of the trail just above the pond and it turns a 90 degree right. Trail is easy to follow once you get on it. The Brutus bushwhack is marked by a small rock on top of a strip of birch bark on a much larger rock right in the middle of the trail at the approximate top of the slide. We met two other hikers bagging the peak. The start of the Owl's Head Path is marked by two small cairns.
