mjsmountaineerKatahdin via Hunt Trail  Sucess!
This was the culmination of a very nice weekend trip to Maine. I started from the Katahdin Stream campground, using the Hunt Trail as my ascent route. I started early which afforded me the chance to hike alone. I thought about what it was like for Thoreau to climb the mountain 150 years ago. I caught a few views from the summit plateau before the clouds rolled in. While I was on the summit, a father-daughter team reached the top, concluding their long trek of the entire Appalachian Trail, something I look forward to doing for myself someday.

Climbed on an absolutely perfect sunny day. There was no wind whatsoever on the saddle or the summit. Very enjoyable fun climb.

Descended via this trail after a roughly 15 mile day over Katahdin. The boulder's were awful after having already climbed the mountain twice and decended once.

Awful lot of upper body usage for a Trail! There was a bit of via ferrata in there although I avoided tugging on the iron and got up and down without its help.
