If I recall our discussion, it should read "Historic Kunjamuk Cave"

Apparently, "Historical" is an adverb and describes a verb. "Historic" is an adjective and describes a noun...like "Cave".

Thanks ghia!

Lots of stuff to do there. The fact that the easement lands are generally open for recreation is an added bonus. Bike loop is cool too!

Kunjamuk Cave via Christine Falls, STF

Today, Tredhed and I decided to check out Kunjamuk Cave in the Speculator Tree Farm. Tredhed skied here many years ago from Speculator and I've never been here in the winter. We figured it might be...

Joshua,

Welcome!

I'd suggest looking at the "Discover" series of guidebooks by Ingersoll and McMartin. I've used the "Discover" series for years. They're very easy to follow and give local...

Interesting data! I'd say it pretty much matches my unofficial observations over the last week or so in the general area. Step off the trail without snowshoes and you're up to your shins or knees. ...

Thanks Kathy!

In the summer, the first mile is very rocky and the trail is extremely wet between Glasgow Mill Pond on Hillbrandt Vly. We saw where the snowmobile club had brought up some small...

Hillabrandt Vly, FLWF, 27 Mar, 2019

Sometimes, when Tredhed and I plan a trip it's to conquer a mountain. Sometimes it's to get to a pond to pursue a wiley trout. Other times, it's just to take a walk in the woods. Today's walk in...

The ice wall is at the upper end of a large vly that's about half a mile to the northeast of the County Line Lake trail. Check out Google maps and a topo of the area, it's easy to find the...
