I had wanted to go on a large hike, but the weather did not cooperate, with a heavy, steady rain for much of the day. Towards the mid-afternoon, the rain had stopped, though it did not clear up and was still damp and cloudy. We decided to take a short hike despite the conditions. We parked at the trailhead where the White Bar Trail meets Kanawauke Road, and took the White Bar trail up Carr Pond mountain to the view. We then continued and climbed down the mountain, and bushwacked up the valley formed by the stream back to the road. We found this part very difficult, partially due to the wet and slippery conditions. Once we got back to the road, we walked on the side for about half hour until reaching the car.
