    Stupid question: Isn't back country/ "at large" camping allowed in the Adirondacks below 4,000 ft? Did they get rid of that with COVID? I think I'd rather take a meat tenderizing mallet to my own...

    I guess you're right. Incidents just haven't been making there way across my usual news sources. Figured there had to be a lot of issues with all the new and inexperienced hikers out there this year.

    Is it just my imagination or does there seen to be less accidents and rescues this year despite the big increase in hiker traffic? Seemed like a lot were happening early on in Spring and then it got...

    I noticed on the summit SAT that there is now a water spigot outside on the Nelson Crag side of the summit building entrance so you won't need to go indoors anymore to get water if you are a hiker....

    No offense taken. I live in Southern New England where "hipster" takes on a different connotation than it probably does up there. The notion of sweating at an activity that doesn't involve monetary...

    I've had several people recommend that place. Have to go over there one of these days and check it out. Was it hiker friendly or more of a hipster kind of place?

    Did Fabyans Station Restaurant Close?

    I hiked SUN in the Bretton Woods area and coming down Base Road about 2:30PM I noticed there wasn't a single car in the parking lot at Fabyans and the windows had a hazy, vacant look. Did they close...

    That would seem to make the most sense. When a Cog or Shuttle passenger gets to summit building they shown their ticket and walk in because their fee was included in the ticket. If you hiked up and...
