Zealand Falls and a few views makes the wooded summit of this mountain easy to swallow for Northeast Peakbaggers Zealand mountain is located in on 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.

Great hike. Not strenuous but has some minor stream crossings and rocky path requiring sure-footedness. Go to the hut for a nice view.

Did this one last September as a solo day-hike. One of my favorites of the 4000'ers. Not a difficult hike but it is long. The first couple miles are very easy and wind through various types of terrain. There's also a brief but steep portion maybe 3/4's up. No views from the top but the cliff view is one of the best I've seen. I spent a good bit of time there. Stopped in at Zealand Falls hut to rest and use the restroom on the way up and back.
