Bond Mountain trail is largely an old logging road. It starts at the gate by Bond Spring, which is one of the areas only usable roadside springs. Follow the rather rocky logging road for about 15 to 20 minutes until the steady incline plateaus. Soon on the left you'll see an old stone foundation that belonged to Captain Bond and his family. Across from the foundation you'll see a somewhat traveled, ribbon-marked trail that goes to an outlook toward the north, where you'll get a view of Rock Haven Lake partially obscured by trees and some foothill views in the distance. Up and back takes about 50 minutes to an hour. Just good enough to get the heart pumping if you take it aggressively.

Never ended up on the actual trail, but the logging road hike did get us to a small Peak and some interesting rock walls.

After having a hard time trying to find the entrance (a gated trail by a pvc pipe water stream past the Maple place) we got lost...The trails aren't marked and we continued straight because it looked like that was the trail when in reality it was a logging trail...Once we noticed there was absolutely no trail to follow we turned around and found our way back to a very small patted down trail (near a down tree with pink markers) follow that trail and it will bring you to the top. The view wasn't the greatest and the trail was VERY ROCKY and UNEVEN!
