Comments
Comments: This hike was a point-to-point hike from Lincoln Woods to Zealand including the summits of all three Bonds, Guyot, and Zealand. Overall the trail is in excellent condition. A few muddy sections between the Zealand summit (if you can call it that) and the hut. I took exactly two steps on snow all day as it's pretty much gone. Saw a moose at the lower lakes between the hut and north trailhead.
