Ascent Trip Report

steep climb up south side of McKenzie but views of Lake Placid from top were well worth it. hiked long loop over McKenzie and Moose Mt.:Jackrabbit Trail-Wadsworth Trail-Loch Bonnie Trail-Two Brooks Trail-Bartlett Pond Trail-Lake Trail. when I got down to the Lake Trail, took a nice dip in Lake Placid to cool off and wash up.
