Date of Hike: 8/13/11

Trail Conditions:

Beautiful warm day, partly cloudy and dry. Trails relatively easy to follow and well marked. All right turns! No issues with water crossings. One blowdown area and short trail relocation between Cabot Cabin and summit. Profusion of wildflowers. Low areas on York Pond, Bunnell Notch and a large part of Unknown Pond trail are very overgrown.

No special equipment but went thru 2.5 liters of water.

Left around 5:30 pm, Fish Hatchery gate closed but not locked
The views from Bunnell Rock and The Horn were spectacular.
The flock of Cedar Waxings at Bunnell Rock entertaining.
