Join the CMC as we hike this great 7.5 mile hike from Big Pond to Cabot Mountain, with it’s wonderful view to Little Pond. After summitting, we’ll complete the trails that loop around Little Pond before returning to the Touch-me-not Trail and to Big Pond. This is a difficult hike with some significant climbing. Be sure to dress in layered, moisture wicking clothing and wear good hiking boots. Snowshoes, microspikes and crampons may be needed, so be sure to bring them. Gaiters are always good to have in snow. Bring plenty of water or hot beverages, lunch and snacks. This will be a full day hike.
