This will likely sound way more snarky than I intend it too, but going to Fish Creek and complaining about the powerboats is like going to NYC and complaining about the tourists.

I mean, yes,...

I’ve camped at the Chasm before, and while nice, it’s not noticeably different/better than the Wilmington Notch or KOA. Likewise, the Chasm trails are very nice (they have a fun, friendly race there...

We had no problem carting it earlier this spring

When we camped there. “It” being the normal parking lot. It was a little tricky on the final downhill to the pond, mostly due to the stones, but it wasn’t that bad.

There was 1 medium sized piece...

Well

Last time we went down there it was still an issue, but with the snow still in Paul Smiths you’re not getting down that road either way at this point- it isn’t plowed in the winter.

And hereeeee we go

Fish Pond truck trail is a gem and is in good shape- it can be very fun to combine this one with pond skiing & canoe carries.

Hays Brook Truck trail and grassy pond are very nice, gentle terrain...

But we skied Avalanche pass and the Mr. Van trail today and it was pretty awesome. Based on past experience I’d think the higher train stuff has to be close- I bet someone has skied both already, but...

We often get our first snow in October or November. A decade or 2 ago snow in early December would have been a safe bet- now, probably but no promises. We had 65 on xmas eve a couple years ago.

You will be able to see and hear the road from 62- is it the only
Site that was open that night? If you're heading downstream the free sites on kiwassa or on the river between 2nd pond and the locks...

Casa re-opened a few years ago, seems to be doing a steady business.

Folks were definitely sad to see eat n meet close. The former owner has been "hosted" for a night by some other local places, like Origin Coffee here in SL (great place btw, check it out!)

They never saw the huge influx of campers they were initially worried about

At least that's my understanding. I suppose one could argue that the permit system helped keep people away, but it would be hard to prove or disprove this either way. I guess we'll see when the...

"A third drive up summit, which very few of us ever envisioned, may soon be a reality"

The author absolutely must know this is laughably untrue. Seriously?

Fish pond truck trail

If I'm not mistaken. Personally, I wish it was legal to bike any pre-existing logging road/fire road. My rationale being, the road is already there, my 20 lb bike cannot possibly have any additional...

Looks like 2nd pond construction is almost done

I'd guess later this week, blacktop is all down, no lines painted yet

They're not great

Paddled/camped on middle and lower many times, worked there for a summer in fact. I don't have a map in front of me, so I may get the numbers mixed up. The eastern most site is nice, but not very...

on the other hand

As a local, when I want to go camping, it's safe to say I'm not heading for the Old Forge campgrounds (or the little wolf pond campground here in TL where I currently live). For all I know, maybe...
