This will be a light midday hike at Harold Parker State Forest (which is located off I-93 and 114 about 15 miles north of Boston). I'm planning on an easy 2.5-3.5 mile hike. It would be on fire roads and trails in the woods. Most of it is fair.. >>Read More and View "Who Likes It"

I would join on a weekend, as well.
I'd be up for it, but only if it were on a weekend. Midweek is tough for me but please do whatever works best for you and anyone else going.

So you could do a week or so between Burgos and Leon, or between Pamplona and Burgos which are mostly flat with a few climbs. Most guides suggest stages of 14 to 18 miles a day but if that seems too much you can break them up into shorter segments with places to stay en route.There are also various services that will carry your bag for you between inns for about $7 a day. You should be able to do it at your own pace! Let me know if you have more specific questions.
Hi Michael, I am just back from a month in Spain doing the Via de la Plata from Mérida to Santiago. My apologies that it's been a while since i've signed in here! I've just posted a definite plan for a Camino hike Oct 5-12 and am awaiting the webmaster's approval so it should go up soon. Of course you are the best judge of your own abilities but I would guess that pulmonary issues would limit your ability to deal with significant elevation gains. There are flatter parts of the various caminos t

Night hike on Pinnacle

Start hike up Pinnacle from the upper parking lot say around 6:30. Would need crampons and warm gear for this. Not a hard hike but fun.>>Read More and View "Who Likes It"

I like the idea of night hiking. You might want to consider starting at the lower parking lot. It's winter and the road to the upper lot is rather steep.
I would do it as a day hike. I cannot drive at night. --Frank

The Rangers rerouted the trail around the steep rocky area at the start of the trail. The trail both ways is very well marked with NYS trail markers and it’s easy to find your way in and out.
Great hike have done it many times. Bit steep and rocky washed out road at start but levels off. lean-to usually occupied.

Hi Phil - thanks for asking. here’s more info: Yes, the entrance (with lots of parking) is at the NE Metro Voc Tech. (I forgot to add that.) Let’s say 2:00. According to GayOutdoors it would be easy (“Little or no physical challenge involved. This level of hiking includes 2-4 miles, usually covering terrain that moderately rises and falls with hikes on unpaved trails as well as paved or gravel surfaces) It’s not dead flat - there are small hills, but nothing big (a few hills raising
What is the difficulty level? Do we park at the NE Metro Ctr lot? What time does event begin. Thanks. Phil

Great idea!! My partner and I will unfortunately be traveling for this one but we will definitely participate in future North Shore kayaking trips. We have kayaked many of the local rivers but not this one. Looks really interesting.
Trip is posted, please take a peek and sign up. there is not a limit to the number of people to com. the more the merrier. :)
