Comments
Comments: Great day for a hike! Trail almost flat until the approach to Zealand hut. Then you start to feel the ascent.
Fantastic view at the "view" marker--don't miss it.
The summit is just a pile of stones, without a significant view, so savor the view at Zeacliff!

I did the out and back to Zealand summit. I met others who were going on to Bondcliff, but I imagine you would need 2 cars for that.
