Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Parked on route 302 and took Zealand Rd and Zealand Trail to Zealand Hut. Did this with microspikes as the path was well traveled by snow shoers. We needed snow shoes on the way out on Monday the 3rd due to wet mushy snow and holes near the bog/water.

Comments
Comments: The hike from Z hut to Guyot took ~2 hours. We had to pack snow as it had been some days since Zealand Ridge or Twinway were traveled. Snow shoes essential. 2 scambles were tricky but fun. Wind, sleet and rain paced us, but the conditions were manageable and these two paths are well tamped. The return to Z hut only took 1:30. The 3 of us had the hut to ourselves.
