This wooded summit has some nice views on the way up to make up for it. The summit is reached via the Bunnell Notch Trail which is more like an old wagon road through the woods and then joins the Kilkenny Ridge Trail to the summit. On the way you will pass Bunnell Rock with great views to the south. The old Mt. Cabot Trail to the southwest is no longer open to the public so this is the easiest route to the top at just under 8 miles. If you are into camping near summits the Cabot Cabin on the south end of the summit ridge offers a roof over your head but no heat source. Make sure to stop at the fish hatchery on the way out to check out some big fish in the ponds.

Found the terrain very good and entertaining. Lots of dips and turns, but not tough terrain until we got to the part where we could not follow the trail due to snow and not being broken out. followed another set of tracks up over the cliffs but did rejoin the main trail and eventually the summit. a very good hike overall.
