|Trail Maintenance Notes:

|Lost and Found:
||We barebooted out of the parking lot, but quickly put in microspikes, as the Lincoln Woods Trail has a thin but quite nasty sheet of ice over most of it at the moment. Wore spikes all the way to Bondcliff, which is now mostly bare. Then put spikes back on for rest of trip to Guyot Tentsite.|
Once over Bondcliff, there is still a fair amount of snow. So much snow that the trail up to Mt. Bond was entirely snow, it was the easiest hike up the mountain I've ever had!
The trail down to Guyot Shelter was firmly packed. Sadly, many people decided to wear their microspikes in the shelter itself, and the brand new floor is already quite badly damaged.
Snow shoes: You need to bring them! Conditions, I suspect, are going to change rapidly over the next week. I wouldn't go up any tall mountain without them.
