Hey, thanks for helping out. It's sad, but there are many lean-tos that are like Murphy, trashed. This is a snowmobile trail and that probably explains why the amount of trash is there. I was...

Get the road walk out of the way, IMO. I hate rode walking, so that's what I'd do. The High Falls truck trail is an old rail bed with a gravel bed. It's almost as bad as a blacktop road. Were I...

Depending on what time of year you're going and where you stop, it can be crowded. The busy spots are High Falls, as Dragon says, and the sites along the lake itself. When you head into the...

From what I've read, when Giardia first came to the ADKs, backpackers and their dogs (the biggest spreader of Giardia) brought it from Mexico (it's Montezuma's Revenge) to the western US. From there...

The gate has been there for years, well before the sale of PART of their land to the state. The area the state bought, Little Upper Lake, is separate from the Forked Lake property. The upper part...

This is a gray area. If you were to pass thru the gate, you'd end up in a dead-end section of Forked Lake that is surrounded by more Whitney land. You wouldn't, AFAIK, be able to paddle thru to...

Funny, I've read that most water sources that are near where people are have giardia in them. I guess it depends on what article you read. I filter most of my water. A decent filter isn't that...

Yes, Deer Leap and 5 Mile are at the same trailhead. 5 Mile is a longer, but more gradual climb and sees fewer hikes than 5th peak. I guess you could say it's more of a "wilderness experience". ...
