Comments: 3 of us did a Bond's traverse south-to-north. I used spikes from Lincoln Woods parking lot to the end of the railroad grade then used snowshoes the rest of the day except for barebooting from Bondcliff until we were back in the woods on the way up to Bond. Zealand Rd is plowed and mostly bare up to the water supply access not far from Zealand trailhead. The trail was already broken out and there were several people coming north-to-south that we ran into throughout the day. The first part of the trail was fairly uneven with some post holes but with people going down that way later in the day it probably got smoother out somewhat.
