    Peakbagger, are you saying you think the current plan is just a foot in the door in order to achieve the older park proposal? That is what much of the current anti-park side focuses on, despite...

    "Closed off all access" is inaccurate. I think you mean access by vehicle.

    Either way, I've never heard any report of negative economic impacts so far from Quimby closing that piece of land to...

    Lost Dad, I'm a part-time NOLS instructor myself, so I'm probably a bit biased in saying NOLS is pretty awesome. As for other programs, Chewonki definitely seems to have their act together (they're...

    Got a fair bit of work done, although it's a never-ending battle in some spots there. There are a lot of leaners and widowmakers that will probably come down over the winter, and a lot of brushing...

    If you drive straight after the second bridge, you'll be on wide, improved road. But you won't get to the...

    Woohoo! I'm especially happy to hear that, since I just adopted that trail this spring. I've been planning on heading in there to do end-of-season maintenance next week, and I wasn't particularly...

    Peakbagger, it is true that the forest products industry is not dead, and is actually more productive than before. When I said it’s in decline, I misspoke— what I should have said was that it can’t...

    Thanks for the article, jniehof. I've never heard of thunderbear, and I don't have time to research him any further right now, but he brings up points that neither side seems willing to expound on...

    I agree that the Baxter plan wouldn't work in the Whites. There's also just the fact that adding restrictions like that to something that's been so free and unrestricted for so long would probably...

    Guyot has some overflow camping up on the ridge just south of the junction to the campsite. 13 Falls has an overflow site near the kitchen (hidden until the caretaker decides to send people there)....

    As expected, 13 Falls was full and had to resort to its overflow site on Saturday. Relatively quiet, despite the crowds, but it got me wondering about the Forest Service's plans for backcountry...

    Very good question! I'll be staying at 13 Falls tonight, so I can report on that tomorrow. I'm afraid it's going to be packed, but that's based on my last experience camping there, which was six...

    I'll second this recommendation. It's a great map, and it includes Tumbledown as well as bike routes, paddling areas, and lots of less popular trails that I probably wouldn't have heard of otherwise.

    Tumbledown Winter Parking

    Does anyone know what the parking is like, if any, for the Byron-Weld Road (on the Weld side) this time of year? I've been thinking of heading into Tumbledown Mountain while there's still plenty of...

    Peakbagger says it all! I would just reiterate one point about reserving a campsite, and add one.

    First, do call the park office– they are very helpful, especially for first-timers who...
