    It is likely open but that is probably the last place in the woods I would go right now. It is very popular and it's a zoo out there currently.

    I went out this weekend and did an overnight bushwhack to a place I rarely ever see people. Not only did I see more people on the .7 mi of trail I did take than I ever have, there were people on the...

    I will have precisely zero interaction with people on any trip I will be doing this month. One benefit of avoiding 4ks like the plague (see what I did there?). If I stay home I'm interacting with...

    I can't find the original so you'll have to excuse the link to my instagram post from a 2018 trip. The sign has mileage via the Clark Pond Loop for LD rd, clark pond camp, moose mtn shelter, and...

    CPLT is the Maskoma trail Scubahhh mentioned. The snowmobile trail I use crosses the J trail before the bridge and closes the loop with DDT at the house where DDT enters the woods.

    I was in the store in the Seaport last week and had 2 pairs made. The metal aglets are nice but too big for my Keens so I had to cut them off. I'm pretty sure it's all paracord.

    I'm 180 and almost exclusively do overnights. 22" MSR shoes (lightnings or revos) are what I use. I carry tails and use them as conditions warrant. This combo has never failed me. I used 25" shoes up...

    Halfway through my second season with them and I am still mostly happy. The most aggravating thing is the webbing is prone to snow and ice buildup in wetter conditions.

    Doublehead gets more traffic than Spruce Peak and packing up wood is recommended. It's also all softwood so anything you do manage to scrounge up won't burn very well. Other options: Beaver Meadow...
