Today was a solo 6.2 mile hike in 16 degree temperatures at Great Pond Mountain Wildlands. It was awesome.
As far as I could tell I was the only person here during the 3 hours I hiked. I stuck primarily to wider trails, with the exception of the short and icy Red Pine Trail and a brief period of off-trail hiking due to what I assume was a missed trail marker on the Hillside Trail (I used to call this "being lost" but I like my new description better).
Most of the time I was hiking on ice; fortunately I brought microspikes. There were great views of the surrounding mountains.
Here is a link to the trail map
