I've done this hike several times. I would do Colden first via Lake Arnold. The descent of Colden towards the Lake offers spectacular views for the first 300 feet of elly loss. But the main reason...

Not anywhere. You must be at least 150 feet from any trail, body of water or water course, unless at a designated site.

Doing Blake first means that after Blake you feel like you are on your way home. Also, after Nippletop it's mostly downhill (with the exception of three climbs of roughly 250-300 feet each: Dial,...

Taking hormones and other "juice" is like making a deal with the devil if you ask me. Very tempting I'm sure but at what price?

If you change your mind-set you will not feel like you are wasting a whole day hiking the same stuff twice. Also, you could hike up WF via the Lake Placid Slide (or up the ski hill slides) then...

Ouluska Pass and the Scooter Slide. Triple bonus of blowdown, heat and bugs.

Ouluska Pass has a bad rep. Now I know why. 10 years ago, Glen and I did a Seymour East-Seymour-Seward whack and sideswiped Ouluska, to the south of and below the pass summit. On this day I decided...

What remains to be seen is whether opening up Boreas will deviate visitation away from the HP's or whether it will increase visitation overall to the park. Maybe it will be a bit of both.

From the get-go I was pretty sure that motorized access would win out. As for injecting money into Newcomb's economy it's a long way to go from Boreas to Newcomb to pick up big ticket items like...

On Friday North River (took 14 hours) was even harder physically as Stewart-Sentinel but due to what I'd had to suck up on that hike I was in a good mental state the whole time.
