I went to the AMR yesterday for the first time ever. I am a huge fan of the reservation system and hope there is a way to expand it. The process was quick and easy and fair.

I almost never hike in...

This is emblematic of how DEC and the Cuomo admin have mismanaged the High Peaks. They ignore the obvious problems for years, despite all the stakeholders them to develop a coherent plan. Then when...

Interesting to see how it plays out in practice. I'm supportive of it in theory. There is no God-given right to kill the Golden Goose. Hiker-ship at the AMR is like 5 times higher than when they...

None of the info I found online or in the ADK guide book mentioned it being a seasonal road - nor was it mentioned on the DEC website which usually lists seasonal road closures - so it's not...

Floodwood Mountain road closed?

So I tried to go to Floodwood Mtn last weekend but a little under 6 miles from the trailhead (acc'd to Google Maps), there was a sign saying the road was closed in 5 miles. So I turned around. Anyone...

You forgot the key 4/1 update: Governor Cuomo and commissioner Seggos announced that the DEC would be adding 40 new forest ranger positions to the Adirondacks to deal with surging hiker demand.

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.

Online costs money to maintain. And presumably an app would have to be developed. There'd have to be an 800 number or something for people without internet access (or will they just be out of luck)....

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.

I don't think permitting is coming any time soon. Definitely not 2020 and probably not 2021. Too much is needed to be done and more staffing is needed to implement and enforce (something the DEC...

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.
