Bondcliff: the first summit with several cliffs
Mount Bondcliff is located in the heart of the Pemigewasset Wilderness Protected Area in New Hampshire. Bondcliff is often referred to as Mount Bond and West Bond Mountain. At an altitude of 1300 meters, Mount Bondcliff is the first summit to appear on the trail before Bond and West Bond. It is a beautiful mountain that promises a strong feeling thanks to the presence of several cliffs to go.
A difficult path, but particularly surprising
If you're captivated by Bondcliff Mountain and you're not dizzy, your journey starts at the Lincoln Woods Visitor Center parking lot on Kancamagus Highway. Then, your path continues with a 55m suspension bridge that leads you to the Lincoln Woods Trail. Previously, this 4.5 km long trail was an old railway that was used to transport wood. Now, it's a pretty path decorated with pieces of wood and quite easy to navigate. To get to the top of Bondcliff, continue to the Bondcliff Trail. It is a fairly difficult stretch of trail because it is decorated with several cliffs and the climb is palpable. Before reaching the highest point, climb a cliff about 10 feet high. In bad weather, these cliffs are a real danger. After 14 km, the summit of Bondcliff offers a spectacular and somewhat special panorama. If your goal is to reach the summit of Bondcliff, you can take the way home safely. If you want to extend your hike and take on another challenge, the Bond and West Bond Mountains are waiting for you at a slightly elevated altitude. It is a beautiful challenge to want to reach the other summits.
