    It took some time for Uber/Lyft to be approved in NY State outside of NYC (which is why they could pick you up in CT and bring you to wherever even in NY, but not pick up in NY to go to CT), but they...

    Just be sure to check - I had seen it posted somewhere that ME was asking for a recent negative test for those visiting from some areas, so you'd want to be sure if that was needed for either/both of...

    Depending on what your hike plan is, if you have to return to the car the same way you might be able to leave your campsite set up and then pack up on the return - that way you don't have to carry...

    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...

    Has this area had problems in the past?

    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...

    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.
