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.

Assuming that this is a paddle trip, if...

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

Hmmmm.... I just noticed the 65S, which has multiband technology yet is $100 cheaper than the 66SR. It's also got slightly more limited space (5000 pts vs. 10000 pts, 200 tracks vs. 250 tracks) but...

I've been using older-generation GPS units for years without complaint. However, I'm also starting to feel extremely limited by the storage space (or lack thereof) on older GPS models- 1,000 points...

Yeah, Callahan Brook is neat. On one of my trips through there I spent a little bit of time poking around upstream of the crossing. Seemed like maybe there was a faint herd path along the north...
