Ascent Trip Report

Yesterday we enjoyed a great day in the woods exploring MacNaughton via Indian Pass and Wallface Ponds. With our side treks to explore Rocky Falls, Scott Pond and the southeastern summit of MacNaughton we hiked ~ 17.6 miles with ~2200' of gain for the day. The trail to Wallface Ponds (~6.8 miles from the Loj) is well marked and relatively easy, it is also incredibly beautiful with many areas to explore along the way. The last 1.5 miles from Wallface Ponds to MacNaughton's summit is a bushwhack - that's where the tough part began :)
