Comments
Comments: Did my first Bonds Traverse with a buddy of mine (his first too)! Zealand Rd. to Lincoln Woods, hitting Mts. Zealand, Guyot, West Bond, Bond, and Bondcliff. Also stopped at Zeacliff Pond and Guyot Campsite for some redlining miles, and hiked 0.1 mile down the abandoned part of the Wilderness Trail to the derelict old railroad trestle. Mostly cloudy and windy, but the cloud deck was high, so great views were had. The whole thing came out to 21.2 miles roundtrip with 4,000 ft. of gain, and it took us 9.75 hours. #13 through 16 for my buddy.

Thanks to Riley P. for a fun hike!
