Dix Range 7/15

I had originally planned on hiking to Dix from Route 73, but since I was able to get there on a Monday, I felt it was a good opportunity to get to Elk Lake without having to worry about parking. And...

Donaldson, Emmons, Steward 7/1

This was my second trip to the Seward range after going to Seymour in June. At 5:20, I was second to sign the register. I was happy that the preceding hiker had drawn spiderweb duty (but later found...

Deer flies are now out in the Sewards. I used a picariding bug spray which seemed to prevent bites, if not the buzzing, for most of the trip. But in the last 4mi to the car, BF, DF and skeeters were...

This was #21 for me (15 of them in the last 9 months), so I get the feeling I'll be back for E, D, S in the near future, perhaps under dryer conditions. I'm also open to doing Seymour again any time!...

Seymour 6/8

For my first ever visit to the Seward range, I decided to attempt Seymour Mountain. I grabbed the second-to-last parking spot and started off at 7am (p.s. when I left, I saw a lot of cars parked on...

Only a little mud on higher elevations and no black fly until mid-afternoon and then just a few. And I was walking very slowly by then so they had no excuse not to catch up!

Dial & Nippletop 6/1

After over 2 months of inactivity, I was really looking forward to getting back into the woods. I decided for a clockwise loop of D/L, going up the HG Leach Trail and coming back through Elk Pass and...

Newbie questions

I have never owned a boat, nor have I gone on any significant canoe or kayak expedition (say more than 3 hours). Reading The Trails of the Adirondacks has triggered my interest in knowing more about...

So many great responses.

For me, the Adirondacks are my 100% natural sanity medication. Maybe it's only a placebo effect. Or worse, maybe I'm already crazy. But I don't care.

I use the same 32L pack for both winter & summer. In the summer, I carry all my water - should you decide to filter your own water a much smaller pack would make sense. Also, like the previous...

Thanks for the report. Too bad about the water crossing. The DEC had warned about potential flooding for Friday and Saturday, so now I know that their advice is not to be ignored.

Saddleback 3/17 (and Gothics fail)

Another great day to be outdoor. I headed out from the Garden at 6:55 (parking was slightly more than half full almost all overnighters). Overcast weather, about 20F. It would clear up later in the...

I was wearing 3 layers: a base layer, hiking pants and rain pants (light but wind-resistant) instead of gaiters because of the low temp. Did not work a heat enough on the 1st half of Lake Road...
