#46 Mt. Zealand, August 28, 2010

#46 Mt. Zealand (4,265’) via Zealand and Twinway trails, August 28, 2010.

Mileage:  11.4 miles (RT)

Elevation gain:  2,400'ish

Trailhead: The Zealand parking area is at the end of the Zealand Road (gated in winter). The road starts at the Zealand Campground, on NH Rt 302, approx 5 miles east of the junction with Rt 3 in Twin Mountain. A WMNF parking pass is required ($3 day).

Hiked with Rich, Norm, Charlotte, Marie and David on a Mountain Mommas Annual Peak Bag trip (in its fifth year). We stayed at the Jefferson Inn and the Zealand trailhead was about 30 minutes away. 

The first two miles of the hike were flat with a small incline to Zealand Hut.  The morning was cool but we started in shorts. 

The day was sunny with great views on Zeacliff.

Rich was celebrating peak #40; Charlotte #30.

Odd looking pump by the hut.
