Comments
Comments: Unknown Pond Trail (northern section), Kilkenny Ridge Trail, The Horn Spur

Trail was a little tricky to follow at the end of the 0.3 spur trail. A few worn paths eventually led me to the high point on the ledge marked by the USGS benchmark. Otherwise trail was typical White Mountains rocks and roots. Could rock hop through most of the big mud patches. Nice to have Mill Brook along the start of the Unknown Pond Trail and to soak the feet in after the hike!
