Comments
Comments: Trail conditions ran the gamut. Booted Zealand Rd - lots of ice after the “Bethlehem water supply” sign but doable in boots with care. Spikes on at Zealand Trailhead. Snowshoes on at the hut and for the remainder of the day - except for removing for about 1/4 mile near Guyot, then again from about a 1/4 mile below Bond until Hilary’s Step on Bondcliff. Snowshoes from the “step” until back to boots about a mile before Lincoln Woods Trail. Snowshoes were on for about 14 of the 23 miles. There are still several feet of snow at elevation, blazes about thigh high. Snowshoes are a must - especially with the warmer temps coming over the next couple of days.
