Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All easily rock hoppable, even the ones above the hut. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: 4 large diameter straddle over blowdowns within the first mile. 3 of those are at the 0.9 mile mark. 12”+ in diameter. They are laying across the trail just inches above the ground. Other than that there are several small diameter (about 4-5” diameter) leaners and/or partially blocking the path along Twinway between Zeacliff and Zealand Spur. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw a few happy ones. Left my misfit at home because she hiked yesterday.  
Bugs
Bugs: Black flies, everywhere.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: n/a 
 
Comments
Comments: Quick (for me) out and back to Zealand summit today. Trails free of ice and snow until about 1/2 mile before the Zealand Spur and then just brief sections of short lengths of decaying monorail. Longest section maybe 50 feet. Predominantly wet trail otherwise.
