Not from the end, but another possibly interesting connection would be to leave the TCT and go into the Hopkins Forest. The trails in that would allow you to hike out into Williamstown, then going...

For future note, there is also a side trail to the South of Bear Mountain (would have been to your right heading south, rather than the left you took for Paradise Lane Trail) that brings you out onto...

Most likely simply that putting in the parking rules (posting some signs and using people you already have working for you) is pretty simple (and inexpensive) to do, while the rest (creating the lots...

Seems it would make more sense to open the new trail AND leave the existing one. Simply mark the parking areas (which they already did, didn't they?) at the Route 73 trailhead, with appropriate...

Seems like the land owner missed out on making some extra money - allow the shuttles and locals to use the detour at no charge (as they already are), but post someone there (at least during times...

Question being, is it better or worse? For instance, the mention of walking on Route 73 where it is narrower, but is it better now if people can't park in those areas? Thus perhaps a longer walk...

I believe in this case (since they are the tanker type cars) it had to do with rules prohibiting the use of certain types of cars (only having one shell rather than a double one) after the couple...

Isn't MSR the red cans?

Those were at both LL Bean and EMS in Albany (not sure on the size, but I think that was 8oz - around $6-$7 range, though EMS was on sale as of Sunday).
