Comments
Comments: the long pond trail had clearly seen regular travel this past winter most recently bare boots in the recent small bit of snow. the base was supportive with some loose stuff on top. the firetower was quite icy some of it falling off sort of dramatically when disturbed. we descended the trail to about 2700' and set a course to the saddle between bald and goodwin. the going was open through a logged area which would probably be unfortunate later in the season. the snow off trail was firm and supportive. from the saddle we wound around to the east to avoid cliffs and steeper going then headed towards the summit in wide open gladed woods with nice views particularly to bald towering nearby. we left the recognized highpoint to the southwest down to a logging road that brought us back to the long pond trail a few minutes from the trailhead.
