Stayed north on the trail to where it met the ridge north of Nutting Hill. I then went east to the Middlesex County Highpoint, then back to Nutting Hill, then up Watatic Mountain and back down the Wapack Trail. I was able to get up to the ridge in trail runners, but carried my snow shoes. I needed them up top because the snow out to the Middlesex CoHP was soft in spots, and then icy in other steep areas. There were a fair amount of hikers today, many, I assume, fed up with the record snow and wanting to get out for some exercise.
Did the loop via two different trails, picked up 4 geocaches along the way. Done under 2 hours, with the pooch in tow. Cloudy and foggy, I could barely see as far as Route 119. Still it was a fun way to spend a Saturday morning.
