Except the bears have learned to intercept the drones and are well on their way of hacking into your amazon account so they can order dessert.

Hiking is supposed to be fun. If you're uncomfortable or anxious, it's no fun. In answer to your question, that's when it's time to turn back, specifically 'when you want to'. Nobody's paying you to...

A good place to stay the night before would be adirondack loj, that would put you right at the trailhead for an early start. The high peaks info center is in the same area and you can buy a map...

If you're not looking forward to it, don't do it!

Sorry, I'm being a bit tongue-in-cheek but it is bizarre to me that so many people are focused on a number. I guess it's human nature to have...

The 'easiest' way is probably from upper works via flowed lands and the opalescent river. It's a beautiful hike. The Elk lake route is verrryyyy long, but you do get to see panther gorge.

There is a site on the Calamity brook trail, if I had to guess I'd say it's 15-20 minutes from the trailhead. It is possible that it's an illegal site, honestly I don't remember if there's a disc...

If you only have one night, I would go in at upper works, carry packs to 4 corners, climb Skylight, pick up your packs and head to panther gorge. Then the next day climb Haystack and go out either to...

I don't know the exact weight, but I think it's around 25lbs without water for a summer trip up to 3-4 days. That includes food but no dog food. Unfortunately I do end up carrying that too.....

Well behaved dogs are a joy to hike and camp with, poorly behaved ones are a nightmare. If my dogs were not excellent off leash in the backcountry I'd be very hesitant to take them on backpacking...

Regarding the fire, I have found that once I got used to having no fire I really prefer it. The lack of smoke and nice quiet of the evening without crackles and pops grows on you. Plus, it's much...

It's usually much lighter and easier to carry a small filter, steripen, or even tablets to treat water than it is to carry all the water you'll need for a long day hike. There are water sources all...

I think there is an overcrowding problem in the high peaks area. At some point, access is likely to be limited in one form or another. One way to limit access would be to require permits for...

I definitely understand the complexities of the dog issue. Some dogs are ideal hiking/camping companions, others are not. Absolute recall is a must IMO. One of my dogs absolutely loves our...

You could try one or two of the ponds off of thirteenth lake. Peaked Mt pond (and the small mountain it's named after) and Hour pond make a nice hike. There's a trail that goes to Hour pond from the...
