The bridge over the Inlet to the Upper Ausable Lake is now back in service. A railing will eventually be added, but the bridge is safe to cross with a bit of care. The rest of Marcy Swamp remains...

The tracks have been removed all the way from Tupper Lake to Lake Placid. The surface is now coarse ballast. This would be bikeable to some extent with a mountain bike, but maybe not yet an...

The Ranney Trail is definitely the "path less traveled" and it is shorter but lacks the waterfall option and the early views.

There is no longer a spur trail to Mossy Cascade because several...

TCD, I agree that the geocaching exception appears to be inconsistent with the call to remove the canisters from the 4,000-foot peaks without formally designated trails. Rangers have also removed...

My only memory was from my first trip down the Raquette in 1964. At the end of the carry, someone was standing there to direct us straight to the put-in. Guess by then they were tired of people...

Meadows Lane
