Nice photos. I really need to get back and re-hike this trail to check it out with the new re-routes. I'm definitely excited for the new Choke Creek section. Plus it sounds like since DCNR...

This is getting pretty far outside my realm of knowledge. But I would assume that the Thruway regulations apply only to those roads under the jurisdiction of the Thruway Authority. The Northway is...

The problem is that if it were allowed, people would take it well beyond the "harmless" aspects of simply (and discretely) sleeping in your car to get an early start on the trail. Tents in the...

The road is open to 4 Corners 7 days a week (presumably to the end of the big game season). It's fine to drive in pretty much any vehicle now. But as others point out, not great for mountain biking...

Last I heard, campsites weren't likely going to be designated on the ponds until some time next year. The plan is to start with 2 designated sites (in addition to the ADA lean-to), with the option...
