Cabot Lake Trail has a total elevation difference of 941 feet which is lower than average. The hiking and backpacking trail stays roughly within the same elevation zone the whole time which means the conditions are about the same from start to finish. Being 6.8 miles long it's an average length hiking and backpacking trail. The time needed for this backcountry hike is roughly 6 hours, but you never know stuff could go wrong and you could get stuck so be prepared for that. There is only one trailhead, so in and out is the way to trek it normally. Now this backcountry trail is pretty long, so don't forget to pack enough supplies. At parts of the year this neighborhood sees very little rain, so do check for current fire restrictions before you go if you plan to bring a stove or make a camp fire.
