    If I have time this weekend, I might be able to take a road trip to scout it out with Miguel.

    I looked at the FLNF Map online. I see the group camping area, and four ponds in that area. Which pond are you referring to Miguel? Also, do you know if any of these roads are maintained in the winter?

    That would be Foster's Pond. Teeter's Pond is a few miles north on the Interloken Trail, also with easy access but I am not quite sure the hanging possibilities would be as good as the pine grove at Foster's. Much would depend on how many are coming.

    The roads up there are maintained during the Winter and there are parking areas at trail heads.

    If I have some time today, I'll call the DEC forest rangers and see if they have any suggestions for group camping spots on state land in that area.

    Someone else want to call the forest service to see about group camping locations in the FLNF?

    Most likely we'll have to get a group camping permit whether we're on state or federal land.

    No permit needed unless you are at a "Designated" spot such as the Patomac Group Camping area, Blueberry Patch campground or the Horse Campground. Blueberry Patch and group areas are closed in Winter and The Horse Campground is open to all campers in the Winter. I recently confirmed this with a Ranger. You can camp anywhere in the Fingerlakes National Forest for free other than those locations. Normal fees are $10...half that if you have an Access Pass. BTW...all of these locations inluding Foster's Pond are within about a mile from one another.

    PS I believe the Horse Campgound is also free. I wouldn't have a problem slipping up there sometime soon and taking some pics/video of the site.

    I like how this is coming together.

    I see Fosters Pond now. I wish I had a better map than the one online. Where is the pine grove in relation to Fosters?

    It's at the north end about 10 yards or so West on the Backbone trail. Look for a little path on the right side of the trail. There are actually a couple of sites in there right next to each other with seperate fire rings. If the group got too big you could easily have two fires.

    At the intersection of the Interloken trail and the Backbone trail there is a very sweet site right next to the pond but it will only hold about three hammocks. It's within a stones throw of the pine grove. It even has a picnic table....not sure how it got there.

    Miguel

    PS Ha ha...I meant look for the little trail if there in person....not on your internet map.
    PSS Pretty sure I could meet there this Saturday...tied up on Sunday.

    Nice. It doesn't look like that should be much more than half a mile from the parking area.

    This site has a lot going for it:
    * Winter access
    * Close to the road, but not too close.
    * Great hanging location in a sheltered grove
    * Established fire rings to minimize impact

    For all those who responded that they were interested, how does this site sound?

    Ahhh... Frozen Butt is trademarked. Given the location we're considering, I suppose we should call this the Frozen Fingers hang

    Before everyone commits, I'd believe I could make it over there for some pics and a possible video of the area possibly as early as tomorrow.
