Used Nancy Pond Trail to return from camp at bottom of Desolation Trail. Summited Carrigain on Day#1 then descended via Desolation to camp in Stilwater area. Hiked out on Day#2 up notch trail to Norcross Pond (epic beauty!). Continued on Nancy Pond Trail to the cascades (epic again!) checking out the upper portion and lower section. This trail is wonderful and just keeps on giving! This option is a much better way to take in Carrigain, in my opinion, then just peak bagging (just watch out for Brutus the bear!).
