HikingMuddy

Hiked to owls head Friday and Saturday via backpacking overnight. Took both bushwhack to avoid water crossing. Both bushwhack were not hard to navigate. The river water level is high but are cross able if you go a bit up or down the river to find better route. The trail is wet due to recent rain, bring multiple pairs of socks. Overall an okay trail.

HikingMuddy

This trail was a bit boring with only interesting section the very last leg up to the falls. A bit muddy in spots due to a few days of rain. Very straight and long. Beside for the length, it was an easy walk. Note: the Black Pond trail breaks off from the Franconia Falls trail just below the falls. It was .8 miles in and a bit more interesting than the FFT.

HikingGreat!Snow

Zealand was my 20th 4K footer and my favorite so far! It's a long hike but not overly difficult. The first part of the hike (2.5 miles) is flat and beautiful, an easy stroll through forest and moose ponds. Once you reach the falls and hut you begin a steady, fairly steep ascent to the Zeacliff outlook. This is the hardest section, but only requires mild rock scrambling at times. Lots of boulders and stairs, very well maintained and absolutely magical in the snow. Once you reach Zeacliff, you make your way to the summit, crossing the forest ridge. This was the longest part of the hike and at times felt endless, with several false summits. The actual summit is wooded (no view) but there is a wonderful Zealand sign. Be sure to wear layers and bring micro spikes! It snowed on Saturday and when we hiked yesterday (Sunday) the entire trail was very wet and totally snow covered at the top. Dress in layers, bring a hat, and gloves! We hadn't anticipated such a full-on taste of wet winter hiking, but with our warm waterproof clothes, boots, and spikes we were absolutely fine. End note: I hiked this with my (very experienced hiker) husband and our 17 year old daughter (this was #18 for her) We moved at a steady pace, took several breaks, and finished in 6 hours. I used Strava to record the hike and it stated 14.14 miles. My iPhone health app said 12.5 miles. Either way, longer than the AllTrails estimate. Just an FYI!

This morning’s hike to 13 Falls was a wonderful hike. Portions of the trail were flooded by beaver dams, lots of wet sections due to recent heavy rain and snow. Brook crossings were also challenging due to the heavy run off. The Lincoln Brook Trail was mostly non-existent today. We hiked 3.8 miles from Thirteen Falls around to the Owl Trail Head. The ENTIRE distance was completely covered with running water, Marsh, and 6”/8” of snow from the night before. The trail was non-existent and intensely difficult to follow. This is by far the wildest, most remote hiking I’ve done to date. Starting day 2 with the climb to Owl’s Head summit. The entire rock scramble was in running water. The upper mountain above the slide was snow and mud. The hike out on the Lincoln Brook Trail was wonderful as we dropped below the snow line. The river crossings were very difficult! The brooks were full on rivers, swollen with run off and snow melt.

Had to turn around when we got to the first major water crossing - water was too high after a storm the night before. Hopefully it's already calmed down and folks can dig in - we had read reports from the week before and no one had mentioned the water, so it must have been recent and hopefully short lived.

Turned back after deciding it was too cold for wet shoes all day and water crossings were too fierce

Went up today. Foliage still going, well a bit passed peak, and it was chilly. This trail has it all, nice forest paths, ponds, waterfalls and views along the way. No views at the top but that didn’t detract from the hike one bit. In fact, it was nice to have some shelter from the wind today. Snow covered many of the higher peaks last night but spared Zealand. Trail up was a bit wet and the further up we went the more ice we encountered.

Wonderful trail. Ice above hut to summit; off and on: avoidable with care. My recording showed 11.1 miles not 10.6.
