    The shelter is made of stone and with the cold temps recently, it will be really cold in there. You'd be much better off on the tent platforms. Also note that there will likely be significant ice and...

    I did the knife edge in the rain, that was a bit intimating. It's certainty easier to go up from Lehigh Valley then down. There is just one little tricky move near the very top.

    But, yes, there...

    Good luck to the new owners. Hate to say it, but that place really needs to be torn down before it falls down.

    That's a really dry section of trail at the best of times. The water for Kirkridge shelter might be turned off for the season (outside tap at near-by retreat building) so there would be no water from...

    The Laurel forks shelter is not far from Dennis cove, so that could be too short a day unless you have a late start. Then there is no possible place to camp until you get to the top of Pond flats as...

    Once it turns into mud in the lower elevations and slush higher up, it's no longer fun. That's starting to happen the end of March these days.

    Me too.

    The fact my Dad's B-day is in mid April is another reason. I go down to FL to visit, then hit the trail on the way back home for 4-6 weeks. By the time I get back to NH, slush/mud season...

    He's a thought, you might be able to get the bus driver to let you off at the Liberty Springs trail head (the Basin). If your pack is next to you, he just has to pull off the highway long enough to...

    All you know for sure is the time and place you start.
    From there you just deal with it one day at a time and figure out the details as you go.

    From the story I read, the deposit is only 35 feet long, so it shouldn't take much to dig it up. However, Maine has some very strict mineral mining laws, which will delay or hinder any development of...
