I'm not sure about the mileage comparison with other trails, except to say that there is comparatively little elevation gain on the NP compared to these others, so mileage could be greater (of course, there could be other obstacles!).

Good luck with your hike!

both are relatively close to the trailhead ... you'll have to ask about being dog-friendly!

There are a couple places in Northville too, but I think they're more expensive and may not provide you with a ride to the trailhead.

Happy trails!

The ADK guide has been revised and *was* due out this year but was delayed in order to incorporate the impending changes in route between Wakely Dam and Lake Durant. There was little point in issuing a guide that would be almost immediately obsolete.

So how much longer before "impending" becomes reality? Could it be a long time? Several years? Is the route drawn on a map yet? Flagged on the ground?
