    The Clark Pond Loop was old AT, many moons ago. When I went to school we hiked a few remaining pieces of it but the rest had fallen into disuse. Not sure who if anyone has taken up maintenance on it,...

    Most of the guests in the Grant know exactly what they're doing, and have been going up there for years. In many cases, decades. The hiking trails are minimal but the bushwacking opportunities are...

    On flat or rolling terrain, sure, they work. They will allow you to move on skis, glide where applicable, and hopefully make good time. Are they bindings for going downhill in hiking boots?...

    The number 48 isn't part of the list, it's been 46 and 47 in the past. There's no need to replace anything. If Hight or Guyot qualify they'll be added in their own right.

    Tripoli is dirt for a good chunk of its length, but it's in pretty good shape. It is usually gated around the first snow, so it's still open.
