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.
