Zealand Mountain Trail Maps - Directions from the parking lot to the summit Top

The trail map below shows how to get to the summit of Zealand Mountain via the Zealand and Twinway Trail.

From the Zealand Parking area off Zealand Road, begin up the Zealand Trail, and hike for 2.3 miles. Just after the Beaver Ponds, there will be a junction with the A-Z Trail. Stay straight for another 0.2 miles along the Zealand Trail. At the next junction, turn right towards the Zealand Falls Hut and Zealand Falls instead of staying straight onto the Ethan Pond Trail, which is part of the Appalachian Trail. Continue for another 0.2 miles past the hut. At the next junction, stay left onto the Twinway Trail, rather than turning right onto the Lend-A-Hand Trail towards Mount Hale. Continue up for 1.3 miles until you reach a junction where you can turn to see Zeacliff with incredible views! After enjoying the views, continue up the Twinway Trail for another 1.6 miles to the summit of Zealand Mountain, passing an optional turn on the left about halfway, to see Zeacliff Pond. To get back to the Zealand Parking area, retrace your steps the same way you came up.
