Mount Cabot

22 November 2014

I mainly wanted to explore the Cabot cabin as an option for backcountry overnight stay in summer or winter season. I combined that with a friend’s desire to bag the 47th peak out of 48 New Hampshire 4,000 footers.

We left Boston very early in the morning to reach the trailhead by 08:00. We started the hike soon after:

Location: 44.498107°N, 71.358465°W

The day started cold under clear blue sky:

Location: 44.529868°N, 71.393690°W

We used traction on our boots for the entire hike. After several water stops & adjustments to clothing layers, we arrived at The Horn, the most scenic spot of the entire hike. It offered views of upcoming parts of our hike to The Bulge & Mount Cabot:

Location: 44.517908°N, 71.400000°W

Another angle offered views of the northern Presidential range:

Location: 44.517885°N, 71.400053°W

The snow was deep on the ridge all the way to the top of Mount Cabot:

Location: 44.505963°N, 71.414348°W

A short distance from the peak was Cabot Cabin:

Location: 44.503227°N, 71.409902°W

We went inside to find a table for snack break in one room & two bunk beds in another room:

Location: 44.503227°N, 71.409902°W

The descent was fast:

Location: 44.501237°N, 71.411283°W

Looking up from the valley, we could see the three peaks we had just hiked: The Horn, The Bulge, & Mount Cabot:

Location: 44.493982°N, 71.367307°W
