TCD, I agree that the geocaching exception appears to be inconsistent with the call to remove the canisters from the 4,000-foot peaks without formally designated trails. Rangers have also removed...

My only memory was from my first trip down the Raquette in 1964. At the end of the carry, someone was standing there to direct us straight to the put-in. Guess by then they were tired of people...

Meadows Lane
