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...

I don't think Carson has quite as strong a constituency as Grace.

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. ...

SG is correct. Elevation and aspect make a big difference, especially this time of year. Here in Keene, despite the recent thaw, we still have a good snowpack at my house at 1800'. And there is...

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. ...

That's a gorgeous area; you are going to love it.

I don't know from what you said whether you have pack boats that you can carry in to backcountry, or whether you will paddle frontcountry waters. ...

Thanks, DS.

I don't think it's DEC specifically that is fighting against common sense. After all, DEC is screaming for more Rangers; but the Governor says "no." All locals recognize the need. ...

Agree. Waste of money. The people that get in trouble generally choose not to read this information anyway.

You are correct that part of the solution is to have a person talk to people at the...

Maybe. No worries.

I was traveling at the time - this was on a relative's PC with Windows 7, Chrome and Avast. I don't know what the various settings were.

There is definitely something...

Probably won't need spikes, but you will probably see at least a little snow up on the mountain. Spikes are so small and light, just throw them in the pack anyway on the slight chance you might need...

Unless I'm missing something, I don't think there are any leantos in the Split Rock Mountain Wild Forest.

Blackflie, that's great info. That's another example of how to do it right, with face-to-face interaction to deliver the "safe hiking" message.

I agree, these are good lists. Buckladd's list is good too; as is the list that Tony G. has promoted in earlier threads and in ADK magazine.

The problem, though, is not in coming up with an...

This is VERY encouraging. I've been preaching the need for this (to deaf ears) for about a decade. It's nice to know that the DEC may finally be listening. This is the first thing I have seen from...
