    Remember to tell everyone that New York is filled with nothing but skyscrapers, honking taxicabs, rude people and muggers.


    Enjoy your time in New Hampshire and Maine!

I already decided that I need to come back sometime in the future to hike the NPT and do the other hikes I didn't get to do this time round. I wish I had some comparable hiking opportunities at home...

    Thanks for all your help and great suggestions!
    I hope you enjoy the Whites as much. ;-)
    YMMV

    Free advice worth what you paid for it. ;-)

    The High Peaks is the "go to" spot because of the mountains and Lake Placid Village. OTOH the park is full of places to hike if you are not focused on climbing and crowds. There is a shelf full of books on hikes in the area. Ditto maps.

    I assume you are going in the east side. If you do come out the SW corner through Old Forge and you will get a pretty good tour of the area. There is a lot more to the park than the high peaks. You can get maps and books at any of the gateway villages.
    I have rented canoes from these guys the last two summers. The Kevlar are the bomb! Very light and carry a lot of gear. Their suggested routes are awesome.
