This hike is going to be a doozy but incredibly beautiful. We're going to hit a 4,000 footer (Cabot) and three 52 WAV (52 With a View) mountains (Horn, Bulge, and Roger's Ledge). This is not the usual way to get Cabot as a 4,000 footer as we'll be starting at the Kilkenny Ridge Trailhead and from there make it to Roger's Ledge, the Horn, the Bulge, and then Cabot. The views will be incredible, and with an elevation gain spread over 9.4 miles, this will be a challenging but doable hike for those who have previous experience in the Whites or Adirondacks.
We will also be doing some car spotting by leaving a vehicle at the Unknown Pond North Trailhead where we will end our hike. Plan for 30 minutes driving back to Kilkenny and then another 30 back to Unknown Pond. This will be a long day in terms of logistics, but this one has been on my wish list for a little while, and I can't wait to have you part of it!
Length: 13.5 miles
Elevation gain: 4,335 ft
