Our hikes of 1998:

98-05-16
We have made MacNaughton Mt. as a two days trip. We walk Friday night from Upper Work to the Henderson Lean-to. This is a 45 minutes walk. Saturday, we were going to MacNaughton Mt. by the South side. The bushwhack starts after Hunter Pond, near the first set of old metal pieces. The ascent, along the right side of the MacNaughton Brook, is very hard. The herd path is not continuous and progress in a very dense spruce forest. Our hike was 11 hours long. This is the hardest hike since 10 years.
