    Malto is correct, the AT is a bouldering climb out of Lehigh Gap, difficult in snow and ice. The winter trail is a little longer, but a switchback dirt trail that meets the AT at the top of the...

    I use them with a merrell moab ventilator shoe and they work fine. No gaps, nothing gets in the shoe, and, best of all, using permethrin on them and tucking your trouser legs in them makes a good...

    Since this has drifted into answers about Baxter, let me ask a question. If you reserve a camping spot or a shelter spot in Baxter to climb Katahdin (not coming in as a thru), does that reservation...

    Thank you, AT Traveler for gertting this off the hunting philosophy and back on the original question, and the same to runt13 for NJ history and data. One would think, after perusing all this, that...

    Dogwood: great idea and something we might all like to see. Unfortunately, kind of like "world peace", which we have been working on (or not) for thousands of years.

    Without getting into the philosophical aspects of hunting, the vast majority of us have to live with the practical aspects. No matter how the population of this country grows, whether by birth or...

    Question(s): am planning on retiring next summer (at age 69, it's about time) and was looking to do Katadhin and the 100 mile wilderness. Was looking at Baxter's site for info today and found the...

    Whatever you think of Bissell or his motives, he doesn't set the rules for Baxter, but is in charge of enforcing them. If the requirement is no alcohol on the mountain, why would you deliberately...

    If you are going to the trail, it is worth it to try Lehigh Gap. Go north on the turnpike extension to the Allentown exit (about 45-50 minutes), go east on Route 22 to the 7th Street exit for...

    I was afraid that Redford and Nolte were too old to play Bryson and Katz but I may be proved wrong. It does look like it will be pretty good if the trailer is any indication.
