    If you hike in or around the area, you will see that the land *IS* posted all the way around, perhaps not to the letter of the law in every place, but pretty well. And I suspect they are well aware...

    Seems like it would be tough going down hill?

    I've heard of goats in the ADKs, but not sure if they were carrying burdens, or just out for a walk. There are certainly horse trails you could take.
