    SNP Trail condition

    Planning a few day hike in the southern district this weekend. What kind of shape is the trail in after the storms? Is it even passable? How are the water sources while we're at it?

    I've used the lot on the PA side, in town where the trail goes back into the woods with no problems. Don't know anything really about the NJ side though.

    Leki pole straps

    Just discovered that my ever faithful canine companion though it wise to chew through one of my pole straps. Anyone ever replaced them? How easy is it and what did you use.

    Trail running hydration

    My trail running is starting to reach the distance where I want to be taking some hydration with me. What do y'all like? I'm leaning towards a pack as I'm not a big fan of the bottle belts.
