    Their site doesn't say one way or the other (the closest would be that many facilities are open to the public dawn to dusk, but that probably said the same as this was something sort of special for...

    Cosmo had noted on another post that while the Goose Pond cabin is not open, the land around it (owned by NPS) is for tenting. He also mentioned there is one other site in MA that is also NPS owned...

    Possibly since most of these longer trails tend to have more volume? Thus, it would be unlikely that if someone was in need of help that another hiker wouldn't be passing by within a reasonable...

    Though it does seem if this is something an average person could do in a couple minutes, it wouldn't take them nearly as much to do it (not like making something totally different). They wouldn't...

    Also (just in case you are searching on an electronic type list), it is spelled Jervis (with an e rather than a) - not sure that matters, but some sites can be sensitive to that kind of issue.

    Yes - it's actually called Pine Cobble development, and the entry is off of North Hoosac Road. Most direct route would be Cole Road (a traffic light on Route 2) then a right at the end of that where...

    Just depends on where you are. In this area, a fairly large chain of convenience stores always had them in each store (just an extra phone on their store's regular line) - keep forgetting to check...

    That would be a good time for a split day hike/overnight en route to somewhere else - drop one at one end, other drives to the other and transfer keys when you meet.

    It might have just been that location, particularly if (being you said VA) it was anywhere near the southern end of Shenandoah Park. That one (which eventually lost it's Holiday Inn branding before...

    Loft (the southernmost) looks to be later April (23rd) now, and that sounds familiar. We were there in 2002 at the group site nearby from the 13th-20th of April and it wasn't open then either but I...

    The tents may not be as bad as you'd think when it comes to wind. We had a group camping on the beach (OK, behind the dunes) many years ago and had a mix of the Eureka green tents and some older...

    Not sure why, but these always seem to be hard (even at home), as they like to adhere to the pan they are frying in more than anything else. Just a thought if you haven't had them to try them out...

    Just to add to the other issues was that storm Wed. night into yesterday. With snowfalls of 20-40" through much of NY and into New England it didn't help with the backlogs. We had at the lower end...
