Ascent Trip ReportFrom the Cabot Knob, it was a very short hike to the actual summit. The trail dropped slightly in a shallow col and then ascended again for the few meters left to climb.
I emerged in a clearing and noticed a few signs on the trees. This was the summit, and I was now done for the day. This had been a difficult hike, mostly because I half bonked and was aching pretty badly from the left knee. I took a few pictures and started back towards Cabot Cabin where I'd spend the night.
The trail sign at Mt. Cabot's summit has been modified, maybe to reflect access changes.
