Ascent Trip Report

Started at TH to Big Moose Pond - Little Moose Ponds and descended down to marsh area and then campsites around Big Moose Pond then realized we needed to take the trail to Little Moose Pond which circumnavigates around the Big Moose Pond and over the Ponds damn. Climbing around the knolls and crossing the Loop trail twice (and using a portion of it you take the bearing to the right (or west) to the Notch Pond trail. There are many knobs that look like peaks in the area but the actual trail takes you closest to the tallest peak in the Little Moose Mountain area and some ledges.

Highlight of the trip (since we had no visibility) was Big Moose Pond which is a nice waterbody nestled between the peaks.
My third hike in this area and I have yet to have the weather clear out at the ledges and summits and provide a view including when i did Big Moose Mountain. I will keep trying.
