Comments
Comments: This was a great walk on a beautiful day, though not as strenuous or long (5 hours) as I expected. The trail is in much better shape than I'd expected, presumably because it leads (from boht ends) to a 4000 footer and there are a lot of peak-baggers out there. It's funny how the Kilkenny Ridge Trail seems to peter out just north of Waumbek, and then pop back to life at Bunnell Notch; and pete rout agian just north of Unknown Pond, which is anything but unknown! Truly sectacular views from Bunnell Rock and The Horn!
