Comments
Comments: I started this hike yesterday on Zealand Road, see yesterdays trail report.
Spent the night at Guyot Campsite as the last tent platform had been used.
2 people were in the shelter and were gracious to allow Piper and I to stay for the night.
This was around 5:00 PM. after that 3 other people came in and shared the shelter, two were thru hiking one young man started in Georgia came off after the Smokies when the trail closed and than came back on the trail about a month later. He was averaging 20 miles a day and needed to get to Mount Katahdin before college started.
There was a caretaker at the campsite and it cost 10 dollars per person and one just put the money in a box attached to a tree.
Beautiful shelter which was built last year. Bear Boxes were available to use as well as a great spring with water coming out of a pipe. Cold and crisp tasting.
Caretaker told me all the campsites on the Pemi loop are always filled because everyone is doing the PEMI loop.
Spectacular views on the Bonds. Saw some people hiking up from Zealand and I was running low on water a kind hiker gave Piper some. I never ran out but there is no water from Guyot going up Bondcliff until about 2 miles from the summit down Bondcliff trail.
Great trip. Piper has completed 33 of the 4000 footers and on 8/2/20 she will be 3 years old.
