I've used the Garcia ones since the rule was put in place. Never had evidence that bears found them, let alone tried to open them. That being said, I have seen the "water bottle" type like this one...

All posturing and bluster aside, it would be good to know what the DEC policy is on keeping trails passable in wilderness areas. My own opinion is if it is labelled as a trail and gets cut off by...

I doubt that adding safe parking will increase popularity. It will just make things safer before there is a tragedy. Popularity comes with promotion (as mentioned in thread).

Just like I don't...

I agree. Getting across 73 from the designated parking area for the Boquet path to Grace was like a game of Frogger, only not so funny. Then crossing the bridge (that has no sidewalk) to get to the...

I just plan on getting to these lots insanely early (as in before dawn) if I "need" to climb these peaks on weekends. I bring breakfast with me and eat in the lot. I have never had to park on the...

Agreed- sad to see the area is already being mistreated. Wish the state could put a human in there to be sure this kind of thing does not happen, but fat chance at that. So much for LNT. Hopefully...

Henderson Lake 9/22

Had always wanted to paddle Henderson, a place my folks had visited with their Hornbecks. With my mom's passing, I thought it appropriate to take one of the boats up for a lap around the lake in...

Stunning day on Henderson today. Not a soul on the water. Paddled all the way around, lunched on beach by the leanto. What a dramatic place.

I use the black ADK-approved bear canister. Would not mess around with anything else. Never had issues with bears when using them. Why bother with a bag and risk your provisions?
