Zealand mountain is located on the edge of the Pemigewasset Wilderness. You will pass by a beautiful AMC hut and Zealand Falls on the way to the wooded summit. The falls are definitely worth a stop at on the way up. You will have some views of the Bond Range near the top through the trees.Show more

Three days, two nights, 10,000ft of elevation gain, some of the most punishing terrain and.. totally worth it! Make no mistake, this hike is difficult. Can be done in a day for very experienced hikers. As hard as this hike is, it's just as rewarding. Walking along the Franconia Ridge just under the clouds, looking at the landscape is an experience that at times can feel like being transported to Middle Earth. Parking at Lincoln Woods is $5 per day, and if you stay at any of the campsites it is $10 for the night. The loop and campsites can be very crowded so if you want a tent platform make sure to get to the sites early. There are two AMC huts along the loop as options to stay for the night, you need a reservation in advance.Show more
