Thanks for NewYorkology for the mention and the reminder that early season hiking is in full swing. Just got off the phone with our local Department of Conservation and they confirm that there has been no formal warning for mud closures as of yet. Trail conditions in the High Peaks are reported to be ‘frosty’. If we can get past the next couple of weeks without heavy rain, there is a good possiblility we may not have our traditional ‘mud season‘.
Don’t forget your bug dope.
