Great Pond Mountain Wildlands

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
