Yeah, Montcalm is right. If you look closely, there are two private inholdings surrounded by state land on the south side of Forked Lake. They are small enough that on a larger scale map, they'd be...

My experience has been that the height of the nuisance bear activity around Lake Colden is usually in June/July. I think by August enough berries/nuts have ripened that they are often able to find...

Bradley Pond Lean-to is OK. I was just in there last week- I hauled out probably 10+ pounds of grills, and a beat up frying pan. My hiking partner carried out rolls of duct tape and several pounds...

Assuming that this year is more in line with pre-pandemic use levels, you shouldn't have much difficulty finding an open tent site at Marcy Dam or Lake Colden on a Sunday night. I wouldn't...

Nice photos. When I hiked the Loyalsock Trail back in April, I remarked to my companions that parts of the trail felt straight out of Middle Earth- like the Ketchum Run stretch.

My experience has been that Grass Pond gets less use than the main body of Lows proper. But that's not to say that it gets no use, nor that it can't fill to capacity at times. Like electbc says, I...

I'll second Snowy Mountain with emphasis that it is a longer and tougher hike. It's only a few hundred feet shy of High Peaks status (and in fact it is higher than some of the actual High Peaks). ...

I generally would not expect to rely on existing tables at any primitive/backcountry site. The DEC does not supply them, any that do exist are typically courtesy of someone who put the effort into...

Sorry, yeah, heading north up along The Branch. The old logging road follows the stream pretty closely for a mile or so. Once it veers away from the stream for good it's not really worth continuing...

It's a bit shorter and also a bit of a drive, but The Branch comes to mind, on the south side of the High Peaks. Where it crosses Blue Ridge Road there is a small parking lot on the north side of...

Have you done the full North Fork Mountain traverse? It's a route that I'd like to do at some point. I've hiked half of it- lead it as a day hike with a Syracuse University Outing Club group during...

I got out of the woods yesterday- did the whole loop, followed the old Quehanna Trail from the Medix Run crossing to Laurel Run (now blazed in yellow and called the "Bear Run Trail"). Trail was very...

Yeah, good to mention. I went through there on my longer trip (Little Tupper to Inlet on the Oswegatchie) last summer, and the main body of Low's was visibly packed with nearly every site occupied. ...

I've driven back there a few times and don't recall having to dodge more than the occasional rock, so I'd say it's been improved (but can't say with 100% certainty as I did not visit the area for the...

RE: Cage Lake trail from Star Lake: I hiked this trail once- in 2010- and swore I'd never hike it again unless the DEC cuts a new hiking trail that doesn't follow the ATV trail. As you note, there...

Doesn't that turn into a seasonal road before you get to the Floodwood Mountain trailhead? It's been a relatively early spring in some respects but it's still early to be expecting most seasonal...

Sometimes if you get a good swarm around your head, you can walk over to a companion, bow down real close to them, and transfer the swarm to their head.

Thanks again, Jeff. It sounds like the planned replacement bridge for Mosquito Creek hasn't yet been constructed?
