As I said over on ADKHighPeaks, I think this is a very encouraging development. Sure, it's piecemeal; and sure, the state continues to do absolutely no comprehensive planning. But it's "something,"...

Colden from the Loj via Lake Arnold does not involve the unmaintained "sinking bridge." That's further along the trail, in the low area continuing towards Feldspar. If you are just doing Colden from...

I'm pretty sure Neil posted a trip report here (or maybe on ADKHighPeaks) a few years ago for this summit. Try searching Neil's posts in Trip Reports.

I think the question is specific to water crossings. With the warm spells and some rain in the forecast, the status of water crossings cannot be predicted at this point.

This is also an amusing data point in the "overuse and trail conditions" discussion. The "heavily used" trail is in great shape and is very good travel; the far less used trail from Blueberry to...

That's always a good trip. I have done it in both directions several times, including at night in the winter. Trail is "pretty good" (but needs work) as far as Blueberry. And of course it's a...

Yes, Neil's right. Train.

DS is also right, get familiar with the routes, so you can run them mindlessly.

Those interested based on the headline should read the whole article. It's quite short and easy reading. Researchers were "surprised to find that several birds were more likely to occupy sites that...

30 years ago a foresighted friend of mine said "We should just build a big parking lot, and give them Cascade."

This was 100% true.

The state is not smart enough to recognize this.

I agree that if it's a lot longer, it will get fewer visitors. Short version of my comments from the other forum:

You're right! It rained over night here at 1800' in Keene, and everything's coated with ice, so the powder is shot. But it's snowing now, big fat flakes, and the final surface will be OK. Expect...
