Lots of conjecture in this thread.

I think there's agreement on a couple of things.


If the primary function of a ranger is SAR then that's an issue. There needs to be enough funding so that...

Mothers Day 2018 = May 13. Memorial Day 2018 = May 28.

I think we'll...

I don't believe this premise that more hikers per capita are entering the words unprepared has been substantiated.

Thanks again.

OK, so mid May at elevation is more sketchy than I realized.

We don't have gaiters/spikes. Fairly new to this. We've been accumulating gear. Boots, packs, water purification,...

Thanks, just what I was looking for.

If we move the Colden / Avalanche Pass hike to later in the year is one of the other hikes a better candidate for May?

Hi,

Trying to get my head around some hiking next year.

Other priorities for holidays, so we're not going to get our week in the Adirondacks.

As we exited Bennies Brook Slide toward the trail I looked at the headwall and the summit beyond and realized the trail was going to need to gain some...

Yes, still there.

We went in to use the outhouse and didn't see it immediately. Followed the path (marked with campsite disc) out to the campsite figuring it might be that way. Didn't find the...

These weren't at the lean-to.

I'm guessing here but maybe about a quarter mile from the lean-to down Wolfjaw trail towards Southside.

Hopefully you'll get a parking spot at The Garden.

Well put.

I think Saranac Lake has done a fantastic job promoting itself as the family friendly hiking destination. There was a niche to be filled and they stepped right in.

They do a great...

We got there @ 7:05 and the lot was full. Dropped off my party, drove down to the airfield, and took the 7:30 shuttle. Someone else reported the lot was full @ 6:45. So possibly much earlier than...

Climbed Bennies on Saturday. WOW. :)
