Date of Hike
Date of Hike: Friday, June 27, 2014
Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Plenty at Lincoln Woods. When I got there at 5 AM, there were only about 10-15 cars, but when I got back at 2 PM, it was full and bustling. 
Surface Conditions

Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: There were five major unbridged brook crossings. The first four were a little tricky due to high water conditions; I got my feet wet on those ones. The last one was the easiest- no wet feet and plenty of rocks to hop on. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The trails both in and out of the Pemi Wilderness were in excellent shape, aside from some standing water and mud in spots. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: The water crossings and the scramble before Bondcliff's summit may be tricky for both human and canine. 
Bugs
Bugs: The bugs were moderately bad- down low, it was mostly small mosquitoes and flies, but on the summits, particularly Bondcliff, the bugs were rather big; I saw a few bees and wasps.

Comments
Comments: Excellent weather for #37/38! The trail was very wet and muddy in spots, with some standing/running water in places, but once on the ridge, the views were to die for! The WMG is right about the views from here being unsurpassed in the Whites.

Was originally planning to hit West Bond also, but my mind said no. Glad I skipped it, because my whole body was sore as heck by the time I got back onto the Lincoln Woods Trail.

Roundtrip distance was 20.6 mi with 4,150 feet of elevation gain; 8:50 personal book time.
