My wife was joking (but not really) that they are biting her as soon as she opens the door to her car.

If I'm in the yard for more than a minute I'm bit at least 3 times. They are definitely...

Yeah, not to divert you too much from waterfalls but it's not bad. A lot of road walking if you do the whole branch (which I've actually never done in one shot and kind of just want to do to say I...

I've done all 3 as a mutli-day backpacking trip. There's a fair bit of road walking but it's one of the more fun backpacking trips in the area.

Personally I use a tent out here. I know of a number of good off the trail tent sites that are much better than the lean tos. They take a little scouting around, but they are there.

It's at:

Location: 42.6034, -77.3816 or N42 36.2022 W77 22.8958

It's right on the south edge of Hi Tor, and...

In the topo you can see that gully directly to the east and north of the Lean To site. It's pretty easy whacking around there and there are some herd paths, but be careful, the west side gets steep...

Yeah, I looked at your pictures. I kind of deduced they might have changed that section.

So about those Lean Tos in Hi Tor - I'm surprised the DEC shows them on the map, but I guess they probably refer to that map for groups who use them.

If you look in the actual structures there are...

That looks like the opposite side of the valley (at the so-called jump off). So where that trail continues on the South side of the valley should take you up to the Lean To.

That trail is really...

Sunday afternoon on a normal year/schedule can be quite good for snapping up prime sites. But usually any day but Friday and Saturday are best, given conventional wisdom.

Yeah, I don't think this particular tributary has any real head to it. I bet it flows wildly when it does rain, and it's probably pretty dry the rest of the time.

I really don't know the...

I knew I should have clarified: Parish = Conklin.

I’m from Naples so they are interchangeable in my mind. One is the “official “ DEC name and the other is a local name. I can never remember...

No idea about the north country but they are epically bad in western, NY - I'd assume similar to Ohio.
