D,

Thanks for the info.
I'd like to try for a bushwhack up Palmer Pond Hills, anyone tried it from the north side (S of Palmer Pond)?
Not sure if it might be too much adventure for MDB though.

New trails near The Branch??

I think there are some relatively new trails near Palmer Pond and The Branch.
I've looked through a bunch of DEC stuff, but can't seem to find much info.
Anyone know of these trails?

Friends of mine introduced back country camping to other friends at that site.
