Thanks for the tips everyone.

I'd say we were on the mountain no later than 815. There were 3 other groups at the summit during our 30 minutes or so up there.

On the way down we must have...

Thanks for the advice everyone. My biggest concern was the parking. Having others on the trail isn't too much of a deterrent... but parking dangerously on the side of the road is. Maybe we'll shoot...

Ampersand on a Saturday

How jammed will it be? Are we looking at a schmozzle similar to what you'd see in the High Peaks?

We'd consider going later in the day if that helps.

I wouldn't classify the swim at Woods Lake as undesirable. In fact, it was very nice. I just wanted to make sure the OP was aware that it was a bit of a rock scramble to get into the lake... Not a...

The sites we checked out were on the south / southeast shore. I'm not sure if we made it all the way to the last site or not, but we essentially stopped looking once we found a swimmable location. If...

If i remember correctly, we hiked past several sites that weren't really swim friendly. The last site was swimmable, but had large rocks... Maybe 1 foot average. Once in the water, it was quite nice....

Hi Lucky, thanks for the suggestion on the museum. My wife and kids aren't too big on museums though as they're not ones to stop and read about what they're looking at. It could make for a good rainy...

I've been through Tupper Lake quite a few times... It seems to me they could do a lot more to be more interesting for visitors. The town's best and most prominent feature is the lake... But I want to...

Thanks for the input guys. We have Fort George here in Niagara on the Canadian side and there's Fort Niagara on the US side... And we're not Trekkies, so we'll probably skip Ticonderoga. Checking out...

Day Trip from Wells

Every year our family rents a cabin in Wells and every year we do at least one day trip. Over the years we've gone to most of the major towns within a 2 hour drive... Some more than once.

They let us park for free, but we rented a 16' aluminum and a kayak from them. Give them a shout and they may let you park there in exchange for using the launch. You're right that it's between the...
