Thanks guys! JohnMaineIslandTrail, I'd like to hear more about pointers you could provide. I'll message you directly. Maybe we could get a group together and share expertise before setting out for a paddle. I had thought of a group class if there was sufficient interest, but I've not researched places or expenses. Does anyone else feel motivated to research that? Yours, Daniel
I'm quite interested if the date(s) works for me. I have my own crossover kayak w/skirt, can do Class II, but can't roll. . Has any thought been given to getting a group lesson or teaching trip from a reliable/certified instructor/outfitter. I think there are at least a couple on the northern MA-NH-ME coast, and there are some fresh water ones in northern NH.

This sounds great, I'd love to do it with the caveat that I'm coming from NYC and don't have a car. If we can figure out a bus or train pickup spot I'm in.
I'm interested too. I'll definitely be hiking somewhere this weekend and I've never been out that way before. It will be a nice change from the White Mountains and probably good practice for my upcoming hike of the CT section of the AT. Keep me posted too. - Dan

For spring break a year ago last March, I did several of the trails in the Arbuckle Wildlife Management Area along Arbuckle Lake. I did it as a multi-night camping trip. But they can certainly be done individually as day hikes. All but one trail was very well managed; not wanting to do trailblazing and bushwhacking, I avoided that one section.
Good afternoon Gentlemen, I am actually planning four hikes on the Florida Trail to the west of Melbourne. Two hikes in the Three Lakes Wildlife Management Area between US 441 and SR 60. One is about 9.4 miles and the other is about 15 miles. Two other hikes (maybe one) in the Bull Creek Wildlife Management Area between US 192 and US 441.There is 20 miles of trail in the Bull Crrek area (still looking for a forest road to cut the hike in half). I would like to do all of them as day hikes

I would strongly suggest hiking red hill mountain in Moultonborough, NH. The view at the top is quite nice, one of Lake Winnipesaukee. There is also an outlook tower at the top you can climb up, if you want to. It think the total hike is maybe an hour up, perhaps a little over 1000 foot vertical gain? Now there are two ways you can go. At a certain fork in the road, you can bear right and take the snowmobile trail up, which is a grassy walk. At some point the snowmobile trail goes straight a

til closing, Memorial Day. Squaw or Mammoth. Ski or Ride.
Didn't really get much interest last year either. Doesn't seem to be much activity in northern California in general as well. I've got my theories .... Squaw has more than enough snow on the upper mountain to conduct operations thru Memorial Weekend. BTW, I both ski & ride. Alpine & Squaw are my home mountains where I teach. Mammoth is open til Memorial weekend, too so I'm also open to that option.

Is anyone down to plan a camping trip with me? I'm thinking there are a lot of guys in D.C. (and surrounding counties) who would like an overnight camp and hike. thoughts?
Not sure how close the New River Trail is to DC, but camping sites are available and riding the trail is awesome ... mostly flat, ... hybrid, touriing bikes or mountain bikes
BTW I see mention of Mathews Arm CG. It doesn't open 'til May 2 this year. But we wouldn't really need to stay in a campground, or car camp, would we?

Hi Shawn, great idea for a backpack, I could do in February, but March I can't. Great idea though. I'm going to 'like' it! And thank you for the idea. Pete
Hey, Zak, I hadn't noticed that it didn't post the date I entered...this site seems to have some quirks with mobile phone access. Anyway, I'm leaving on the 23rd of March. My return date is open-ended, as long as I show up for work on April 2nd. As far as length, it's limited by the small number of access points to the canyon, and the need to keep advancing to the next available water source.

Anyone know of any cool waterfall hikes in socal??>>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
The santa cruz trail also has some great views and also river camping with day hikes for people that don't want to go to the backcountry. In the SB front country there is also the seven falls trail, folks can branch off to do cathedral peak (bring a rope for the top for those who aren't mountain goats) and there can be swimming holes. Would need to be in spring though for either of those to have waterfalls. Was just back in Manzana last weekend and the creeks are bone dry.
There are also smaller falls up the Santa Cruz Trail near the Santa Inez River just north of Santa Barbara off Hwy. 154 (Oso Creek through Upper Oso Campground). In Southern California, the waterfalls flow more in the late winter and early spring in conjunction with rainy season. I'm all in.
