Comments
Comments: Plan A was to hike Eisenhower via Edmunds Path, but the crowds were too much for our liking. Except for some traffic on the Twinway headed to Zealand, did not see many people.


Zeacliff Trail is steep, but the birch glades in the middle flat section are very nice. From Zeacliff we could see flags on Carrigain, Tom, and Willey. We made it to Zealand just in time for the flag lowering
