I agree but the flip side would (hopefully) be less SAR callouts in general by demonstrating to new hikers the value of having a map by giving them one. That is, if they decide to go buy one after...

The Old NPT gets a lot of use and is easy to follow, even through the beaver area.
Also, the old NPT follows perfectly the dashed line on the 195x survey topo maps.

Definitely going in from Averyville for Saw-1. Ideally, I would do 1-5-3 and exit via Moose Pond and the Old NPT. Depends, as always, on the snow conditions.
