I had a wonderful three days in the Pharaoh Mountain Wilderness. What a great place!

Thanks for the information, folks!

Rocky Peak Ridge May 29-31

I camped at Blueberry Cobbles and hiked Rocky Peak Ridge May 29-31.
Black Flies not as bad as I expected. I was swarmed a few times, but they were mostly not biting. It was really not a problem when...

I don't remember the view too clearly, except that I remember it as being somewhat obstructed - you are looking back down the trail over the tops of the trees. I wouldn't expect too much from that...

East Trail to Rocky Peak Ridge was completely free of snow (and only occasionally very wet) last May 17 - and last year was a heavy snow year.

Ampersand is a great hike, and very popular. It will be very crowded on a Saturday in July.
Might help to go very early or very late.

Why the 3500 foot elevation rule for camping in the Adirondacks?

Does DEC give a reason for restricting at-large (unofficial) camping to below 3500 feet?
I understand that they wouldn't want people camping near fragile alpine areas - but those are more than a...

I want to do it as a loop with a return over Marcy, so I am rather committed to the Lake Arnold route.
Do you think it would be somewhat drier in August?

Yes Don, that is the Eureka Solitaire. I love it. I think it is a very good tent for its moderate price. I find it surprisingly roomy (for that type of tent). I'm 5'11", 160 pounds.
It is easy to...
