Can the public put in and paddle on Elk Lake or do you have to be a paying guest?
Can you drive into Cheney Pond? (not into the pond itself LOL, just to the shore.)

Paddling opportunities near Exit 29?

Sometimes I decide what to hike while driving south from Montreal. Either that or just a few days ahead, it's often weather dependent, which is influenced by safety.
Many will reserve, reserve,...

The title of the web page that leads to the survey is, "Overuse in the Adirondack High Peaks Region". That indicates to me they have an agenda. How does one define overuse?

Ha! Great point.

This reminds me how people say often that we are in the bear's home. But if the bear threatens (or worse) a human it becomes evident very quickly that we truly consider it to...

That's not what he said or implied, at least not as I read his post. Also, this is not a regulation AFAIK but a proposal for a regulation.

Great post!
When I think of land that is designated as wilderness I don't think of what has gone on there prior to the designation. I think about what will NOT happen after the designation has been...

It's for the case of a good thread that gets going, lost of well-thought out replies and a good number of respondents and then poof! The OP deletes it for some reason. In one case a fairly solid and...

I would have thought that deliberately breaching the regulations makes one an outlaw, not a member of any elite.

If anyone is interested in peaks that once had a tower, which has been removed, my wife and I once visited a rather obscure one. We thought the tower would still be there but it was long gone. In...

OK. Got it. Wiltse did come down pretty hard on Schlimmer but then Welch defended him while coming down hard on the DEC. That's probably how a lot of science gets done. Experts beating on each...
