Trailheads, measurements, times, distances, and maps are all approximate and relative to the hike(s) as shown below.
Route: Caps Ridge Trail, The Link, Castle Ravine Trail, The Cornice
Trails were generally dry. A few minor muddy areas. One or two areas of minor water running down trail. This section of The Link was not as bad as I thought it would be, but I don't plan to return to it anytime soon. The section of The Cornice between Castle and Caps Ridge has some far-spaced-out cairns - probably not a good route in limited visibility. Nice sunset on the way down.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 302 West from Bartlett into Carroll. Just after Saco Lake, take a right onto Mt. Clinton Road (generally closed in winter). Cross over Base Road and continue on Jefferson Notch Road (generally closed in winter). At the high point of the road, the WMNF fee parking lot will be on the right. The Caps Ridge Trail trailhead is at the back of the parking lot.
