Mt. Cabot is the northernmost of the New Hampshire 4,000 footers. The Unknown Pond Trail meets up with the Kilkenny Ridge Trail, over the Horn and The Bulge. These are two mountains on the New England Hundred Highest list.
Pictured above is The Horn as seen from Unknown Pond (3100′). The trail is very gradual and leads you through a lovely birch forest. I didn’t notice any blazes, but the trail was easy to follow. The trail then joined the Kilkenny Ridge Trail to the Horn. The trail was tricky at times, but nothing that lasted very long.

The Kilkenny Ridge Trail to The Bulge begins to steepen and then suddenly, you’re in a flat area with a cairn. Once I had reached the summit of The Bulge, fog started to set in. This was fine as there were no views anyway!

I see you found the sign at the summit, but did you hit the actual high point? It’s about 30-40 yards west of here, marked by a small piece of wood nailed to a tree. This sign does not mark the actual summit. I know it’s tripped up a few people I know. : /
