We're planning a 3-day hike so here is an excerpt from a blog about the route we are taking and a few links to get you started.

All the other approaches involve camping (for one or two nights) at Guyot campsite. It is very crowded on summer weekends, at that time an early start is essential to guarantee a site. On the first day go to the Guyot campsite and set up camp. If planning a two day trip go to the Bonds (4.8 miles, 1,850 feet, 3:05). Return next day. For a three day trip just go to Guyot on day one, do the Bonds on day two, and go out on day three. One approach that only works as a backpack is a Zealand, Bonds and Twins traverse. First go from Zealand Road to Guyot campsite, over Zeacliff and Zealand (ow: 7.5 miles, 2,850 feet, 5:10), and set up camp. For an overnight do the Bonds (4.8 miles, 1,400 feet, 3:05) that day, for a three day trip do them next day. On the last day go back over Guyot to S Twin, then out over N Twin (ow: 8.2 miles, 1,050 feet, 4:40). This is my favorite way to do the Bonds as a backpack, you get views from Zeacliff, Guyot, all three Bonds and both Twins. However you do the trip, watching the setting sun from West Bond on a nice summer night is an unforgettable experience.
