As a member of CATS (the Champlain Area Trail System), I got an email that they were creating a new trail to Sugarloaf mountain on Saturday, 11/13. I was disappointed that I was tied up that day and,...

I'm just starting to explore the NP trail by starting at the LP end and going a couple of miles yesterday afternoon, and have a couple of questions:

I just hiked a couple of miles at the Averyville end and somewhere along there I got the ubiquitous call from the Dealer Service Center, so I guess that means there's Verizon service along there.

The Cascade XC Ski Area has (or had) some used skis on consignment - maybe it would be worth checking with them.

I do find that naming funny, because it is actually lower (1960 feet) than the one near the Lodge (2040 feet).

I thought that in the Avalanche lake / lake Colden / Flowed Lands corridor, at-large camping is not only less desirable, it's prohibited.

If you use the shuttle to get to the Garden, realize that it only runs on weekends, so you'll have to find another way back to your car on a Tuesday. If you get to the Garden on a Sunday afternoon...

I have an iPhone 12 but, except for mail and texting, I try not to use it for anything for which I'd have to enter text; I'd rather use my desktop. I'll try it on this site soon.

Does anyone know what's going to happen at the Tupper end? I was there last week and at the station, there is no change (of course, that's where the train is still planned to go). I drove north to...

The 1994 one to which I refer is a reprinted copy of the 1988 version. It's a great book, but many of the property ownership issues mentioned may be out of date.

I had the same response, but decided it was safe so I ran it anyway, just to check. But I usually use https://livingatlas.arcgis.com/topoexplorer/index.html to find topo maps, of any vintage.

Inez trail in Thrall Dam Park

Last winter we went on several snowshoe hikes on the Inez trail in Thrall Dam Park, off US9 in Lewis and noticed that although it crosses Burpee Brook on the map, there is no bridge. However, there...

Last winter, my wife was doing the counterclockwise loop and, coming down "the scrambley section" in your photos, pulled a large rock out! Fortunately, it didn't land on her.

Just stopped by the AMR to clear up a few things.
1. You can get your car out at any time, because they don't lock the gate.
2. If you get a parking permit, you can have several additional people...

The traffic along 73 isn't that bad, and I think that's within the 35 mph zone. It's only about 500 feet from the Ranney trailhead to the Roostercomb PA.

If you can find parking along the road near the Mossy Cascade, use it, otherwise park at Roostercomb and hike Ranney. I've only hike Ranney once, one way, as part of a loop starting up on Mossy...

The North Fork of the Boquet is easy to follow - there's even a registration box there. And it's on the High Peaks map. Farther up, it may get a little dicey,...
