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.

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...

Why don't you try some different kinds of boats by renting them from an outfitter, like St Regis Canoe Outfitters? Or you could go with a guided trip, again either with an outfitter or a guide? You...
