Comments: Lincoln Woods Trail and Wilderness Trail - mostly dry, a few muddy areas.

Bondcliff Trail to Bondcliff - water crossings rock hoppable, tiny patches of snow not even really worth mentioning.

Bondcliff Trail to Mt. Bond - tiny patches of snow even really worth mentioning. Mostly dry trail.

Bondcliff Trail to West Bond Spur to West Bond - patchy monorail (some still rather deep) on both segments of trail.

Bondcliff Trail to Twinway - patchy monorail in the col, otherwise bare.

Twinway to Zealand Spur to Zealand - plenty of monorail/deep snow (water underneath of course), as well as pooled water and mud.

Twinway to Zealand Hut - a few patches of snow until hitting the flats near Zeacliff junctions. Otherwise, some mud. Water crossings hoppable.

Zealand Trail - Mostly dry

Snowshoes would have been of no use. Monorail was fairly firm, but still some random acts of postholing to be had.
