Round Top from Long Pond

I bushwhacked up to Blueberry Hill from our camp on Long Pond. Then I did a walk on Watson Pond Road to the parking lot at the Round Top Trail Head. It was a 1.8 miles to the Round Top summit, then a short distance to the vista overlooking the ponds. Up to 10″ of snow and microspikes worked fine all the way. After descent to the Kennebec Highlands Trail, I did another bushwhack thinking that I would end up near the Beaver Brook Estates entrance, as I had done a number of other times. Instead, I veered south and intersected the path that comes back onto Watson Pond Road just north of Blueberry Hill. I continued back down Fawn Point Estates road and got back home a little after 1pm. The entire route was sort of the reverse of a previous hike.

Summary: ~6 miles, 4+ hours
