While we're on deer flies, I was over in North Hudson this morning. Deer flies were egregious! Imagine that swarm of black flies that everyone complains about, except instead of black flies, they...

Other peaks:
Crane - very nice, a little longer and harder
Gore - OK, but quite a bit longer and harder

If you are wanting to see waterfalls, don't forget all the roadside falls that you can fit in if you have an hour to spend. Also, the falls in the Ausable Club area. (I know waterfalls is a bit of...

Yeah I agree. Woods road type walking. It's easy, certainly. And there are a coupe places like Barn Rock that are neat. But the only excitement in there is the rock climbing and the mountain...

Sadly, this is true, but I don't blame just the DEC. This comes from the top of State Government. It's great to bask in the limelight over all these huge new land purchases. But it's harder to...

Very hard to predict the flies. I was out bushwhacking today on Mt. Van Hoevenberg, and there were zero bugs in the air. I have been told that they are coming out now at Crane Mountain in the...

But D, don't forget to mention the reason why it's usually quiet in June - that's usually "black fly hell." Of course this is variable, but June is usually the worst month for bugs.
