    NY has also allowed this since shortly after closing for eat in, but they do require you buy food as well (though it seems unlikely a hiker wouldn't want food). The question is do any of these...

    That seems to happen up this way in NY, where a couple certain areas tend to attract people who are probably not generally hikers to visit these falls...

    Not sure how many others would have issues, but not too likely that they would be from the same issue (the water problem).

    Maybe they also thought that getting that issue out would, perhaps, get...

    Of course one might also note that the trail itself doesn't go through the highly populated areas that much - perhaps some of the NY section is fairly populated and does go through some of the areas...

    I suppose the benefit to wearing those weights would be to strengthen the ankles and wrists, which could help while hiking as injuring those parts can happen easily with all the motion in them and...

    I would think that walking a dog is OK - even NY allowed solo exercise and said nothing about animals.



    And even if not it still counts as exercise for the day.
