It turns out there are multiple herd/hunter/swimmer paths on each side of the river. I've explored them all since those first trips 15 years ago. A fellow who goes by Trail Boss mapped them and...

I don't know about "entitlement" but I believe that those of us from other states and Canada have a legal right to hike on state lands in the Adirondack Park. In fact, your government, (ie. you and...

With Joe Bogardus.

15-20 years ago it was fairly normal to need 2 or 3 trips to get a single winter peak. Winter hikers were thin on the ground and gear was nowhere near as highly developed as...

I followed the ridge-line all the way and went right over the top of East Peak (ie. the one between 7 and 1). The entire hike car to car, over 8,7 and 1 only took 10 hours, so no issues. Between 7...

Two Sawtooth winter bushwhacks to close out the Range for my friend Jean.

The Sawtooth Range is not all that well known. It was named after the two highest peaks that are side by side. Marshall named them Raker and Cutter for their resemblance to the types of saw teeth. We...
