I've done 6-night trips in my Blackjack 10. I take a rather large dry bag, a medium sized dry pack, and a smaller dry bag with the tent. It's amazing what fits in even a small pack canoe. It...

I like the loop over Algonquin & Iroquois the way Gebbyfish says, counterclockwise -- but I've just done the MacIntyre part & returned via Avalanche Pass, not including Colden. And I find even that...

This may be hijacking the thread, but I think it follows on. As I expand my paddling experience (only started 7 years ago) I'm accumulating a list of trips I'd like to do that I'm not comfortable...

Personally I love that loop. I've done it a few times (although last time was 3 or 4 years ago), and never had *that* much trouble. The upper Opalescent valley where the swampy part happens is a...

I guess there are still no campsites? It sounds wonderful, but a 3.7 mile carry each way dampens my enthusiasm for a day paddle.

Depends on the size & shape of the lake. If possible I stay on the sheltered side, but if it's a long body of water with the wind oriented along it, that doesn't work. Whether sheltered or not, when...

Me too. My 2009 Honda Fit was totalled several months ago (by a kid who was texting), and I used the insurance $$ to buy a Forester. I've been so frustrated, esp. since starting to paddle 7 years...

Wait -- the Lake Colden trail to Colden is very steep, so you've only done that once -- the other times you've used the Trap Dike or the Southeast slide.

That makes me feel better. I didn't try to look it up, but I know it's been too long -- but hopefully not as unforgiveably long as I thought looking at the pic.

Thanks for the great photos!
That Marie Louise bridge is way higher & more substantial than what was there the last time I hiked that route -- and since it doesn't look terribly new, makes me...

In fall of 2014 I contracted Giardia during a Cranberry/Low's/Oswegatchie loop trip. I stupidly kept drinking water that was just filtered, even though I could see particles so knew it wasn't...

Also, if you don't have it already, the basic ADK trail guide "High Peaks Trails" is an important resource -- anyone hiking the area should have it.

I'm in the White Mts right now, and the colors are not peak -- plus, I get a feeling they just aren't going to be too good this year anyway (but I'm not an expert). Last year the Whites were ablaze...
