If it's icy, Gothics can be a little bit tricky via Pyramid, or via the cables, especially if you're descending via either of these trails. The trail that ascends to the Gothics-Armstrong col...

I think BillyGr got it right but it seems that his post was ignored. The group size limits for the High Peaks (8 for overnight use, 15 for day use) are hard and fast, and the regulations do not...

I feel like at one point I did see a "Camp Here" disc in a site on Fishbrook Pond. It may have been the site baisleytom mentions but I honestly can't remember. The problem with heavily used...

The Moose River Plains roads aren't plowed. There is a regulation that says that anyone entering the plains after Columbus Day must have either tire chains or 4WD. I don't think that the gates get...
