We will do a traverse (with a car spot) from Zealand to Lincoln Woods. This is a 20 -mile trip. Mount Bond is a 4,698 foot mountain in the heart of the Pemigewasset Wilderness in the White Mountains. It has two subsidiary peaks, West Bond and Bondcliff, all of which are NH 4,000 Footers. We will take Zealand Trail and the Twinway to summit Mt. Zealand ( 4260) and Mt. Guyot (4580). Then we will camp at the Guyot Campsite. We will summit Mt. West Bond (4540). On Sunday, we will summit Mt. Bond (4698) then Mt. Bondcliff (4265). We will go down the Bondcliff Trail back to Lincoln Woods. This hike requires a long car spot.
Stephen loves the outdoors, particularly in winter. He started hiking and backpacking as a teen and has not stopped since. He has hiked the NH 4000 footers several times in all seasons, and thru-hiked the AT in 2016. Stephen has led trips for the AMC for many years. He prefers backpacks (multi-day when his schedule allows), and hikes at a relaxed pace.
