Yes, still there.

We went in to use the outhouse and didn't see it immediately. Followed the path (marked with campsite disc) out to the campsite figuring it might be that way. Didn't find the...

These weren't at the lean-to.

I'm guessing here but maybe about a quarter mile from the lean-to down Wolfjaw trail towards Southside.

Well put.

I think Saranac Lake has done a fantastic job promoting itself as the family friendly hiking destination. There was a niche to be filled and they stepped right in.

Hi TB,

Thanks for the inclusion of the Wolf-jaw lean-to in OSM. My NatGeo map has it placed incorrectly south of the Woodsfall trail. Once again my party was pleased I knew it's location which...

We got there @ 7:05 and the lot was full. Dropped off my party, drove down to the airfield, and took the 7:30 shuttle. Someone else reported the lot was full @ 6:45. So possibly much earlier than...

As you point out if 190.8.ac was the issue it would have applied to all of the mountains, just not Ampersand. It appears that DEC provided the required approval.

Exactly what we did our first time through.

Bennies Brook herd path

Climbed Bennies on Saturday. WOW. :)

Came across a cairn and a herd path below the headwall. From pictures I'd seen of the headwall it seemed that this exit from the slide was too early. But...
