    I hiked Kinsman Notch to the Mt Kinsman trailhead earlier this summer. It was mid-week and we saw probably a dozen hikers (thru-hikers and backpackers mostly) which surprised me a bit. No views...

    That's exactly the discussions happening right now on the ski forums. People are buying new AT setups and skins and are asking about where to ski in the backcountry.

    To help clear up some misunderstanding, the headlines about neck gaiters are incredibly misleading. The study they're quoting really isn't a study, it was a proposal on testing methodology with often...

    So is the Owls Head path. It doesn't make it an official trail. The description of the Albany Mountain trail in my (older) WMG makes it clear that it's not an official trail, not sure if newer...

    Yeah, getting a trail made official is a big hurdle. Markings are for official trails, same problem with Owls Head. This is completely consistent with USFS policy. People will still find the ledges.

    Yes, all the huts opened this way at the same time. They all now have outdoor water taps, bathroom access during the day, and limited food service.

    They've had a lot of problems with out of state visitors and settled on just enforcing based on license plates. It makes for an easy call and there's no interpretation required. Their FB page has...

    I don't agree with skiguy's point, but he presented it civilly. There's not really anything to moderate here.

    There's little snow left in Tucks now, so the big crowds are long gone. Just the hard cores. When the Auto Road opened there were larger groups up on the East snowfields, but again, not in the same...

    Yeah, I'm amazed at the folks taking them in and helping them out. Trail magic works on bikes as well, but I wonder at what volume of people it breaks down.

    I prefer small groups yield to large groups, that way fewer people step off the trail. An arbitrary choice would be fine if there was a need, but I don't really see the need for a rule.

    Yielding to those walking faster, sure. But the uphill/downhill thing is arbitrary and bogus, IMO. And I feed the Jays as well.
