Catamount bushwhack from Taylor Pond SE leanto?

Greetings,

Wondered if anyone has hiked(bushwhacked) from the southeast leanto to the Catamount summit? From the top map there are a couple of streams, one close to the leant, and another that's southwest of the leant, that there's a trail that starts out along the stream, that goes not even a quarter mile before you have to bushwhack and follow the stream which appears to start close to the ridge along the summit. There appears to be a ridge that runs parallel to the stream that one could follow as a guide? Appears to be much quicker if you're camping at Taylor Pond, then having to paddle back to the boat launch and drive around to the trailhead

I can't comment on the bushwhack, but it's worth noting just in case you're not aware- the lean-tos on Taylor Pond are a part of the campground when the campground is in operation, and there is a fee to use them (and reservations through Reserve America are likely necessary).

The leanto that you spoke of would be the one on the left after the narrows, correct??
If you follow the lake shore to the the SW end, you may see a faint trail to Catamount.
Interesting trail, you may see ice caves on the north side of the mountain.

Hi Hardscrabble,

Correct, if you look on the map link ta the beginning of the thread is marked as B on that map. So it sounds like there is a faint trail then, does it follow along a stream or stream bed do you know? Are the ice caves near the summit?

Thank you,

Brookies

Yes, if you follow the lakeshore to the SW end, you'll find a trail towards the summit of Catamount.
There are ice formations in the deep declevities.
