    Going to do a very short hike up the east side of Halcot in the next few weeks and don't really remember where I parked when I did it years ago. Pretty sure I parked just off Rt42. That sound about right? Any info on parking greatly appreciated. Thx. Chris

    Cornell to Friday

    Am planning on hiking Wittenberg and then on to Cornell via trail and then bushwhacking over to Friday/Balsam Cap. Was wondering if anyone has done this before and can inform what the bushwhacking is like once I drop off the west side of Cornell a bit and then head south around the "Dink"(?)...

    Black fly reports for your area?

    Was on Forked Lake this past weekend and the black flies weren't so bad. No picnic but they were tolerable. It also rained most of the time. What were bad, depending on where we were on the lake, were the mosquitoes. Those buggers were out for blood! Fortunately our last day was pretty...

    Forked Lake

    Recently noticed on a map that there are a few campsites on the west end of Forked Lake. Anyone ever been to these sites? Might be looking for them after sunset so any details about their location, condition, landmarks, etc...would be great. Thanks.

    Solar Panels

    Never used one and not sure yet if I'm gonna even buy one. But considering that I like to listen to music from my ipod at night around a fire, I need a way to keep it powered up for three or four days. Anyone have experience with solar panels? Looked briefly online and saw an 'Instpark 4S.'...
