I spent a night in there last July. The Gill Brook Cut-off Trail is a little longer but easier walking with a full pack, just not as scenic. The first campsite Bucknut mentioned is just past the...

Interesting comment about the formula changing. I haven't noticed a decrease in performance, and Elmer's is definitely not better for glueing boots.

You might try Barge Cement, commonly available in a good hardware store. It's like a rubber cement - apply to both surfaces, wait until it gets tacky, then join. To clamp the repair while the glue...

I paddled the Indian and Hudson Gorge during the Spring release three times in the 80's in a solo Mad River open boat, so my memory is a little hazy. The Indian is some three miles of class 3 - 3+...
