I understand DEC does not permit campfires in high peaks - usually not an inconvenience for us. Hot tenting though. Yes, I get that a wood stove may contribute less to fie hazard but I think part of the regulations are to prevent everyone going all Paul Bunyon on the woods. After this summer some high use areas up there would be bald/clear cut.

So am I right that wood stoves within high peaks area (expanding) are against the rules.

Sure - there are plenty of other areas but this winter we really wanted to avoid some crowds and knock off a few off our list up there.

Separate question. Anyone hauling in canvas tents with a pulk? How heavy a load do you find comfortable. I could envision taking the Marcy Truck Trail into the Avalanche Camp area...
