Comments
Comments: I got to the trailhead at 5:15. I was at West Bond around 11, and back at my car by 4. 22.6 miles, roughly 10 hours. Despite the mud and wet rocks the trail is still in good enough condition to make for a great hike. Those who haven't done this trail the first 5-6 miles are almost entirely flat, then it starts to go up a little towards bondcliff, down and up again over to Bond, and going over to west bond is a breeze. Happy Hiking!
