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.
Thanks guys...real helpful info!
Am hoping to start the hike no later than 7am from Woodland Valley.
Do Wittenburg, Cornell, the bushwhacking and then back the same way to Woodland Valley. Expecting it will take the better part of the day to finish.
From what I've read, it sounds like the...
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"(?)...
Thanks guys...very helpful info!
We wound up doing Cascade and Porter from the north.
You right...tons of people. But the views were outstanding!
Can't say it was fun keeping the dog on the leash though but rules are rules.
Am planning on hiking Big Slide soon (from the Garden via the Brothers and maybe Slide Mt. Brook on return) and was wondering if anyone has done this with their dog. Kinda a new dog owner, have hiked plenty with him on Long Island but not yet in High Peaks of Cats or Daks.
Wow that's crazy about the water level! We didn't actually stay in the leanto but checked it out quick...couldn't imagine the water up so high!
Thanks Mike...had a great trip. We had plenty of water too the first day...rained nonstop pretty much.
But the next two days were awesome! Had some...
Never actually made it to Stony Creek since I started this thread. After three years, I think I'm finally going to paddle Stony Creek this weekend, then over into the Saranacs. Saturday's weather looking pretty good ;)
Anyway...anyone been to the Stony Creek Leanto lately? I'm guessing not...
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...
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.
I haven't been to the mountains lately but I hear that the black flies are out in force in the Forked Lake vicinity of the Adirondacks. Spoke with the campground there this week. Would like to head there soon and hope that they wane a bit by the time I get there...but I have my doubts :o
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.'...
