There's a facebook page called Wanakena Tracks which has all sorts of updates of the area. I'd suggest following and possibly asking.

It's generally not a busy area, but IMO the best way to get...

It's an easy hike, access is not an issue from Floodwood road, there are views, but they are limited and not necessarily all that interesting. WTBS, the summit area is large, rocky and craggy, and...

Can't help you with much other than price. Probably in the 1500-1800 range depending on condition.

Never paddled that particular model but as far as UL Swifts go they are fine boats. Strong,...

There are two ways, one a bit longer if you start by the outfitters, one a bit shorter if you start at the parking lot further down Floodwood Rd.

I wouldn't say either are particularly cartable,...

No idea, but I also did my first week long trip with my peers when I was 16. They were the same age.

We didn't run into many people, but no one ever bothered us about our age.

This is great news!

I've been trying for over a year to find out if the MRPWF draft amendment was approved, but this sounds like it has been.

Wilmington has been building for a while, but the...

As I understand it, I think this is more or less what they are aiming for. The parking area at the dam will be very small and I believe have a handicap access. The major parking areas will still be...

What I'm saying is once you venture a 1/4 mile from a road, besides the noise, there's little difference in character between what we call wilderness and wild forest. I'm not a fan of the noise, or...

You can never expect that public access won't have some kind of impact... it will, but also there will be many positives no matter what the access is:

-the majority of the actual acreage of land...

I have nothing against it, but there have been a number of reports of noisy campers (likely near the dam) but maybe not? You're are likely to see beer cans, cut trees and trammeled campsites here as...

Do you plan on pushing the limit?

If so, contact https://www.canoeoutfitters.com/, they will surely know.

I'm stumped. I think I have an idea of the general region, but I can't quite pin it down.

There are a number of Dead Creeks, which don't help matters.

I have the heavier version of the Copper Spur UL1. I can't recall what it was called but they don't make it anymore.

I like the asymmetry of BA designs and maybe that's what I didn't like about...

I bought a MSR solo Hubba NX like the one pictured and returned it. I'm struggling to remember what I didn't like about it, but I bought a comparable Big Agnes model instead, which I like a lot.

I'm not calling anyone's tree id into question, but I'd be curious to know where there are significant stands of oak, as that is rare in the Adirondacks. And AFAIK, only red oak occasionally...

Really :eh?:

I'm not nearly as intimately familiar with this area as you are, but most of the Adirondack dome is pretty void of oaks.

Where are these "groves" and what species of oak are they?...
