I was up there a couple weeks ago. We went the day after big rain (probably a mistake, but it was the only time window our friend had).

There was a lot of water still coming down; many of the...

Been in that area quite a bit. The new snowmobile bridge makes for an easy crossing of the Palmer Pond outlet. Then it's nice walking in open woods to scramble around from the north side of the...

I don't know about specific locations near Cranberry Lake, but in general cell service in the Adirondacks is terrible, a travesty; don't plan on it. Find another way to communicate.

(A quick correction for the OP - the cost shown for the comfort stations is $400,000 each.)

So I'm in favor of this - lots of people use this area (90,000 in 2019), and it's good to have...

Just remarkable...they are tearing holes in the road near Dudley Brook, and building a "trail to nowhere" at Cascade, but they cannot replace a bridge on a trail people actually use. And you should...

Back to the OP topic - I think theft in the backcountry remains quite rare. I have not seen any reports suggesting an increase in backcountry theft this year, even with the large number of people...

Sounds like a good hike!

You didn't have to worry about parking in that area; the state has not yet created a problem there. They plan to destroy that parking in the next couple years, so it's...

Hi Festus,

Yes, that makes a lot of sense. Trails that make use of old road beds are often better graded and better drained, and hold up better than trails that are "newly carved" through the...

Thanks, DSettahr. Yes, beavers have inundated the original route, as they do routinely. And my book describes the best alternative to cross the river and bushwhack to join the original route.

Mountaineer still has a few copies.

I don't plan on another printing - it was a lot of work, and I had to do it all myself.

A few areas have seen some changes. The forest road to the Wyman...

I would try an area other than the high peaks.

The whole of the Adirondacks is more popular this year, yes (see the other thread about it being very busy at Pharaoh). But the High Peaks are the...

On the Forest Preserve. There's plenty of it. And in bushwhacking, you don't usually run into the damage that you see in the heavily promoted trailed areas.

And believe me, I greatly value what...

Love the Adirondacks too much right now to leave. Hiking, climbing rock and ice, backcountry skiing.

But the bigger part of my family is in Florida, and that's probably the future, maybe in ten...
