    We spent the rainy weekend at an AirBnB near the Park boundary. If the weather had been nice, we would have done an out-and-back on the Goldmine and Cane Creek trails, a total of about 7 miles. ...

    I have two packs, one a heavy Deuter that fits well, and is large enough for cold weather trips or longer trips when I need more stuff.

    The second is the Kestrel 48. It's well made, and does...

    Hookoo,
    Please describe the poison ivy problem a little further. For example, is it simply widespread off-trail? Or is also 6' tall and growing across the trail? I was thinking of a dayhike in...

    The kind of hiker that makes me nervous are those that carry big scary knives and talk about how dangerous the trail is.

    I remember that stretch. We went SOBO from ST to Garfield, and it seemed like it was straight down. We carefully worked our way down, taking care with our footing and joints, and feeling sorry for...

    Discussed all of the above with my husband last night. I think we'll probably try to slack. But that's contingent on how well we do with conditioning over the next several months.
    Thanks, y'all,...

    Glad you made it in one piece! We going SOBO over that beast, hit the steep stuff early in the day, then breathe a sigh of relief.
