TCD: You are right that the state has exacerbated this problem by inviting masses of people to the HP without giving rangers, trails and municipalities adequate resources to deal with this influx.

Parking areas on NY74

Anyone know if the parking areas on the north side of the Pharaoh Lake WA on Route 74 are plowed? Last time I went, I couldn't go to my top two choices of snowshoe because the parking areas weren't...

Climbing in slush

I've hiked a bit in winter but never climbed. A few weeks ago I tried for the first time and it didn't go so well. I was down in the Catskills visiting and it had snowed a few days earlier but the...

That area of Route 8 between Wevertown and Wells (Siamese Ponds WA on the west and Wilcox Lake WF on the east) is probably my favorite area to hike in the Adks.

Rather than wasting the special training of forest rangers, why not use EnCon police for permit verification and sheriff deputies for parking ticket issuing. They are enforcement issues anyways.

Sawyer re-route?

Has there been a re-route of Sawyer Mtn trail recently? I've climbed it 4 or 5 times but not in several years. I did it to day and it just felt... different and unfamiliar in chunks so I was curious.

Ok so I know this is beyond a mad house on weekends and in the summer but is it reasonable to be able to arrive there at a non-ridiculous early hour on a fall weekday and get a spot? Same question...

Protect Adks published a list of good hikes outside of the High Peaks. Some of them aren't exactly low traffic (Blue, Arab) but a good place to start if you want to avoid crowds.

Route 73 trailhead parking

Hi, I know parking is crazy at Route 73 trailheads. I know in the summer and on weekends in shoulder season, they often fill up by 7 am. But is (legal) parking this extremely hard to find on WEEKDAYS...

It is. I've done most of the stuff in that area of the HPWF. Was just hoping for something new. Probably my 2nd favorite lesser-used area of the Adirondacks.
