The one thing I will say is that when I bought them, I went for the "fanciest" model- the...

I use Neos as a camp boot, combined with down booties. They add a little bit more protection from the elements than just the down booties alone- I can scavenge for firewood, head to the outhouse,...

Nice photos. Looks like a pleasant place to hike/stroll along the stream.

Is this part of your long-distance PA Wilds Trail?

The rules vary from campground to campground (and year to year). The only way to find out for sure is to contact the DEC directly and ask about a specific campground. There is a list of which sites...

Yeah, the Pharaoh area should be good that time of year. Much more likely to be snow-free (although likely also to still be wet/muddy, as with any area that early in the season). You likely will...

Yes, there's open rock ledges on the summit with nice views to the east and south that can be enjoyed without climbing the tower.

I thought about recommending the Tongue Range also, since it will very likely be at least mostly snow-free by early May. Honestly though, it'd be a bit iffy undertaking this with a 10 year old with...

I know this thread is a few months old but I wanted to chime in. In a nutshell: I agree with the other posters- tarps are the solution you're looking for.

I've found that even if I'm carrying a...

Assuming you can get at least to the clearing where Old Military Road splits off the Perkins Clearing Road- this adds about 1 mile (1 way) of walking with some moderate uphill. It's actually not...

As others have stated, Allen is a roughly 18+ mile day trip. The best (and currently, still the easiest) means of access is from the combined Allen Mountain/Mount Adams Trailhead in Upper Works...

No, the summit is on state land- totally fine to bushwhack it from Crab Pond. I just meant that the herd path comes from private property and so is really only usable by those who have access to...
