Good morning.

From the research I've done it looks like groups of 10 or more require a permit to camp in the Adk backcountry.

I am planning a trip for a group of 8 later this summer - 4 are headed up Haystack/Basin/Saddleback and the other 4 are up Gothics/Armstrong/Wolf Jaws.

We'd like to camp together somewhere between JBL and Slant Rock and from what I have seen we should be ok in terms of not requiring any special permission.

I've camped all over the high peaks area but never with more than a few people and just wanted to make sure that I am correct in assuming that we will be following the group regulations properly.


Thanks.

Mike

no more permits, they dropped them several years ago, but i believe (and someone please back me up on this incase it went down to seven) that eight is now the max. group limit. it's all good.

(damn the reboot last year loosing me my senior member status)
(damn atlanta for keeping me away from the 'dacs)
(damn blackflies)
