    I did that crossing back on 9/4/16. The USGS 01074520 EAST BRANCH PEMIGEWASSET RIVER AT LINCOLN gauge was only 55 cfs that day according to my notes (it was shockingly low) and the crossing was a dry...

    I saw a WMNF (?) Facebook post about the partial opening a few weeks ago. I think they indicated a third of the sites were open and there were no reservations, just first come first serve. Based on...

    You can always just come and paddle around in my basement. First time flooding (about 2 inches - not disastrous) in the 18 years we've been here. Northeast CT is so saturated and the storms keep...

    Kayak Yoke / Porrtaging Device

    Been doing a little research on kayak/canoe yokes for portages. Was surprised I didn't really find much in the way of actual new products so I spent some time looking at DIY version on YouTube. Seems...

    I can't say I've been to that exact spot of late but it is extremely dry in general up there right now so if that spring is not a reliable one I wouldn't be planning on it as an option. I can't think...

    I did a 10 mile stretch of the Quinnebaug yesterday and it was definitely bony in spots. (USGS gauge was 299 cfs or thereabouts - 2.9 feet I think). I only actually hung up 3 or 4 times but was able...

    Definitely dry up there. I did Glen Boulder Trail and Boott Spur last weekend. Glen Boulder trail was bone dry. Not even mud or damp spots. Don't think I've ever seen it like that at any time of...

    I can understand a bypass avoiding a substantial water crossing or major feature. But a "big" rock? That's kinda lazy and ridiculous. I mean you're hiking right?

    If I am understanding you correctly you are saying you appreciate a sign keeping people on a single herd path versus having tons of unmarked herd paths because there is no clear direction? I would...

    I was a little confused by this when I started hiking in NY too. Most of the trails signs have point to point descriptions as opposed to trail names. To use a NH trail as a "comp" their sign for...

    That is surprising. I beat the crap out of my gear as a general rule and am not particularly diligent about preventative maintenance. Both of my ULA Equipment packs have held up extremely well. No...

    I just bought an Osprey Talon 11 for Summer day hikes. It weighs basically the same thing (1.94 lbs) as my 68L ULA Circuit (2.28 lbs before removal of some non-essential accessories) that I just did...

    I've done several multi day trips this year in addition to some overnights and for the "shoulder to shoulder season" I'm generally 24-26 lbs before water weight and food. For water I carry a 1L and a...

    That does look to be a great option. I have heard of it before but it is not actually where I thought it was. I thought that was down by Lake George for some reason and as such thought it was a very...

    What gave it away? The "vertical rocks" on Pine Bend Brook Trail? And they supposedly went up the North Slide but that was a non issue? Thought it was a pretty sketchy report.

    I agree with it being "out of the bag" and I've only seen a few of the campsites but they are small. Having said that for the SAT of a Memorial Day weekend I only saw two people SAT morning, both...

    Yes I have considered the MSG. It was actually going to be my "prep" hike last Spring to get a sense of whether or not I could do the NPT in July. And of course 2020 went to $#%^ so I didn't do it. I...

    Yes that was one of the only hikes that came up in my Google searches but it isn't a loop. It didn't look like a good option from that perspective.

    I have to revisit the Adirondacks maps and see what I can come up with. I think it's been 2 or 3 years now since I've been back there. Extreme crowds and crazy traffic after a 4 1/2 hour ride was a...

    Loop / Thru Hikes In NY

    For 2021, I've set out to try new areas, avoid crowds and do multi-day hikes. I recently did some short "thru" hikes in PA (the 43 mile Black Forest Trail and the 75 mile Quehanna Trail for reference...
