I was last there 2 or 3 years ago which is not current, but the trail up from Indian Pass Brook is rather rough & eroded, and often wet; and the whole area around Scott & Wallface Ponds is notoriously swampy. There is a slight herdpath on MacNaughton now. It starts near the outlet of the pond where the official trail ends. It's hard to follow but at that point even if you lose the herdpath, if you just bushwhack up & keep southwest you'll hit the summit ridge. It goes without saying that you'll have map & compass. It's not as cut-&-dried as the "trailless" official high peaks.
