Comments
Comments: Zealand road is clear, barefooted to Hale Brook Trail, used spikes from here til Lincoln Woods. Hale Brook on the lower elevations is patchy snow and spots of ground, higher up it has a nice snow pack still, Lend a Hand Trail has seen only boot traffic, couple inches of fresh powder, not too bad on the post holes but could have used snowshoes here to smooth it out, Twinway is snow packed trail until it opens up for Guyot then it turns into rocks with a thin layer of fresh powder, going up Mt Bond there was some drifting that occurred but nothing worth putting on snow shoes for, trail turned to monorail once you get off of Bondcliff and head down. Lower elevations of Bondcliff Trail are patches of snow and ice mixed with bare ground and mud. Lincoln Woods is the same on the end closest to Bondcliff and then turns mostly to bare ground from about Black Pond Trail to the trailhead
