Most likely simply that putting in the parking rules (posting some signs and using people you already have working for you) is pretty simple (and inexpensive) to do, while the rest (creating the lots...

Seems it would make more sense to open the new trail AND leave the existing one. Simply mark the parking areas (which they already did, didn't they?) at the Route 73 trailhead, with appropriate...

Seems like the land owner missed out on making some extra money - allow the shuttles and locals to use the detour at no charge (as they already are), but post someone there (at least during times...

Can't say I've seen that one either (with the same virus program, Avast).

Just FYI - As of Feb 22nd, Scarface had fairly deep snow as you got up higher, and several tricky icy spots (though everyone who went through them had snowshoes and/or micro type ice grips and they...

Question being, is it better or worse? For instance, the mention of walking on Route 73 where it is narrower, but is it better now if people can't park in those areas? Thus perhaps a longer walk...

I believe in this case (since they are the tanker type cars) it had to do with rules prohibiting the use of certain types of cars (only having one shell rather than a double one) after the couple...

No help on campgrounds but just an FYI - we were there April 20th (returning from out near Letchworth park, but being a Scout trip camped at a Scout camp) and the main trail that goes through Watkins...

Isn't MSR the red cans?

Those were at both LL Bean and EMS in Albany (not sure on the size, but I think that was 8oz - around $6-$7 range, though EMS was on sale as of Sunday).

Seems like from other postings that 190.8 rule doesn't cause the issue, it's a different rule for that particular mountain that prevents them from issuing the permit for larger groups on that...

Seems like they could have done it more simply by just doing what they did at the Loj area that one time - only allowing people to park in legal parking spots and having a presence there to prevent...

On the opposite side of that coin - look at the September records.

The three days we had this year that set records of 90 or above (making it the first fully in autumn recorded heatwave) were the...

Seems odd with that list - they list both Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt sites as ones that do offer them, but do not list the Martin Van Buren site in Kinderhook at all? You'd think they would...

From the descriptions of the original builder of the park, not much.
