You are certainly right. Only 46ers and aspiring 46ers even know or care about Porter. Everyone else views this as "the Cascade trail." That trail, the "Cascade and Porter" trail, is slated to be...

Thanks. Nice videos.

But the thread title is confusing. Why "Not"?

We are hoping to prevent this. Keene may be able to have educators on the ground to talk to people before they start.

I have certainly come out of that trailhead very late at night (like 4 AM) in...

This calls for waiting.

If you don't want to remove, wait until you are ordered to.

If you do want to remove, wait until you have a documented permit.

I think you are planning on hiking to the falls. (Of note, it has been "paddled" but I wouldn't advise it...)

I didn't respond when this first came out; waiting for it to settle.

But basically this is BS virtue signaling by Labistour, just the marketing department telling him he needs to appeal to a...

I haven't been there in a couple years. I know there has been a lot of work done there. 1.8 miles sounds right; 2300' is definitely wrong (it's more like 1600).

Trails can be hard to follow in...

Justin, of course you are 100% correct. But Albany has zero interest in doing anything that's going to help. Instead, they are busy putting up signs that no one reads. And they are busy destroying...

Really confusing.

Bennies faces NW, not South.

There is no trail from Elizabethtown to RPR. The trail from New Russia to RPR is on top a ridge that faces East, not North. Or maybe you mean...

Don't know where you are located. We were in Glens Falls when we set up resupply in Piseco in 07. The Irondequoit Inn folks were super helpful and more than happy to hold our supplies for us. ...

The 46ers have done a great job of covering this on a part time basis at Cascade, too; but it's a drop in the bucket.

We can dream up all kinds of schemes to somehow cover this with volunteers. ...
