THE KILKENNY -The only noncontiguous section of the White Mountain National Forest, the Kilkenny boasts more than 100,000 acres of remote forests and 4,000-foot mountain ranges. The Starr King Trail and Kilkenny Ridge Trail offer 25 miles of wilderness hiking. The trek reaches nine summits, glacial tarns, a large beaver impoundment, the Mt. Cabot cabin, an ice gulch, and a federal recreation area at South Pond. The journey through the Kilkenny takes at least two days. There are views aplenty from remote lookouts throughout the region. Wildlife abounds.
