Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All of the water crossing were easy. Strangely, the 3rd Bondcliff crossing was dry but there was still some water running at the 4th. That is the last sure water until Guyot or Whitewall Brook on my loop. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails were in fantastic shape with obvious recent maintenance. Zeacliff trail has some erosion and brush\ferns in the the birch glades. Thoreau falls is "rustic" with two bad areas of washout. The bridge is standing strong and there a just a couple of climb over blow downs.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: The trails are the driest that I have seen. There was nary a puddle from the 4th crossing on the Bondcliff trail to the Guyot campsite. Next water from there was Zeacliff Pond, then Whitewall Brook. 
Bugs
Bugs: None until the Guyot spring and then they chowed down as I filtered. Didn't were bug spray all day.

Comments
Comments: The views in the morning were fantastic. Quite a few people on the Bonds. Can't believe that I have never walked the .1 down to Zeacliff pond. It is very pretty. Zeacliff Trail could be annoying and would be more "fun" to climb up but it has some cool views and white wall brook is nice. The trip out from the Ethan Pond trail back to LW was great.
