Owl head Lookout is a good suggestion, but if you are in Keene Valley already, the shortest approach to a 5-mile round-trip hike is Rooster Comb - just south of Keene Valley. Mostly gentle grades -...

Sharpe Swan has definitely found the Barringer brake up on, I believe, the south ridge of Seymour. As for the cable crossing, perhaps the rush of water when the Duck Hole dam breached in 2011 washed...

That "unoccupied for 48-hour provision" may go back to the days of permit camps on the Saranacs and elsewhere. Supposedly, if one left the camp unoccupied for more than 48 hours one had to take down...
