As far as I am aware, the "every other year" rule is false. Someone made a tongue-in-cheek comment on social media a few years ago that it seems like the road is open through the winter every other...

There's some confusion here- Bagadeez and Woodly are referring to different areas.

OnAClearDay hinted at it but didn't outright state it- the bridge over the Opalescent is currently out. This is definitely an important consideration; the river does often freeze over but it never...

There were multiple groups of bear hunters camped at Lake Colden earlier this hunting season. I think that with the shenanigans that went down regarding nuisance bear activity earlier this summer,...

Also, on a somewhat related note: Why does the ADK insist on continuing to use those marble composition books? Bound (sewn) books inevitably fall apart when campers rip pages out of the back of the...

Not really. I definitely take appropriate precautions (like Wldrns states) but I never really let it affect my outdoor recreation with regards to where I go. I've never been a hunter, but I've had...

The town park in Newcomb has something similar- a glass (plexiglass?) engraving that shows the High Peaks skyline with all of the peaks labeled. If you stand in the right spot, the glass engraving...

I know this is an older post but a clarification- the summit of Swede itself (including the tower) is on land owned by Warren County, not by Lyme Timber. It's the approach trail that crosses private...

Seems possible but unlikely given that geocaches are listed as an exception. Geocaching didn't really start to take off as a recreational activity until after 2000, when Selective Availability was...

Yeah, generally speaking- the horse trails are in rough shape and you need to be prepared accordingly. Blowdown, dense growth, etc. For the most part they follow old logging roads so the tread is...

There are 3 designated tent sites at Flowed Lands (1 at Livingston Point, 2 near the Calamity Lean-to). 4 if you also count the site near the Herbert Brook Lean-to as being part of "Flowed Lands."
