I know the dog is named already (I think Jasper is a neat name) -- but have to add that I met someone on the trail this year with a dog named Summit. I thought it was a fun name, for us...

I thought it must be something like that. The ALC is so entrenched & wealthy that it was a hard scenario to believe -- like hearing that the Ausable Club had to leave their reserve. We're not...

Can someone help my confusion? I don't know the Moose River Plains area, but I thought Little Moose Lake was still part of the Adirondack League Club property. Are there two Little Moose Lakes, both...

Wow -- I didn't know that. I know that leantos work that way, but I always thought the canoe camping sites were one party only. And frankly, while at some of the larger ones you could have two or...

Fun report! I appreciate your friendship with frogs & toads. And yes, it seems that (this year at least) the best route for the small floating bog is north side on the Low's half, then zig to the...

You won't get parking by the middle of the day. Maybe consider staying overnight somewhere near, the night before? (Schroon Lake, for instance? or someplace on Rte 84?) Then you could get up very...

If you do Hurricane, consider taking the north trail from Crow Clearing in Keene. It's a bit longer, but much less crowded and a beautiful hike.

Congratulations on McKenzie. Even the false...

The lake & its shores are all private and there's no camping. And even if you stay at the Lodge, they don't let you bring your own boat, you need to use one of theirs. The first public camping is...

Yes, you need to make a reservation which can be done online (plus a lot of other info on the website), and then pick up a permit at one of the access points on the way in. The reservation system is...

I agree about the compatibilty. The McKenzie trail is very messy & eroded in the steep sections (unless it's been redone recently), but it shouldn't be any worse than all those slippery ledges on...

Algonquin Provincial Park paddle trip

I finally got to Algonquin Park in Ontario, and had a great 7-day loop trip. It started at the Magnetawan access point, went up to the Tim River, down it to Shippagew Lake, Big Trout Lake, & White...

I've used them some years and they do seem to reduce the number of ticks, but not eliminate them all. To put enough out is pretty expensive if you buy them, but there are various directions online...

Thanks for the report & great photos. It's a great area. And yes, parts of the route are very wet. Last year, at this time, part of the Marcy Swamp boardwalk was under several inches of water. ...

Also there are stretches of private property, even on "public" lakes & streams -- I've often seen small boats on shores the map indicates are private, presumably at the end of private trails.
