Mount Cabot - Unknown Pond Loop Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Mount Cabot-Unknown Pond Loop is actually three possible hikes in one. Besides the entire loop, Mount Cabot and Unknown Pond are both excellent out-and-back hikes in their own right. For peak-baggers, the former is the northernmost 4000-footer in New Hampshire. For water-lovers, the latter is a scenic remote tarn. When hiked as a loop, there are another two peaks in between The Bulge and The Horn-north of Mount Cabot along the Kilkenny Ridge.
The Bulge (elevation 3920 feet) is a wooded nondescript hump, but The Horn (elevation 3905 feet) is a desirable destination and a viable alternative to Mount Cabot for those who want similar mileage, about 350 feet less vertical, and both a rocky summit and a pond in one hike, neither of which Cabot offers. Do the loop to experience it all."
