Comments: Well I needed a quick and easy hike and this spring has been difficult. Waumbek takes the cake over cabot yesterday with the more enjoyable trails. Less mud, less snow, Less monorail. Only used spikes coming down from waumbek back to starr king, it was the only really place I needed the spikes. Some new moose prints were out there which is great to see but I did not see the moose sadly. Saw 7 other people out an about.
Great May hike!
