  • A friendly reminder on private property.

    ADK High Peaks Forums is dedicated to protecting and preserving the wilderness. These interests can be found in our Mission Statement and Rules.
    Protecting private property is a major concern. The recent loss of Double Top and Graham is a prime example of what can happen. I am preaching to the choir here but there are many who look for information on the Forum trip Reports. In the future please state South Double Top, and your public route. There has been some confusion and people are still trespassing, not knowing the difference. By stating this clearly, we can possibly help reduce this activity in the future.
    Also, many current routes to other areas are crossing private property, or property in contention whether private or public. Access to Fir from Burham Hlw., Sherril from Shumaker Rd, KHP from Cortina Valley or Cortina Lane stand out. There are others. Again, clearly state if your route crossed private property and permission was gained.
    People look at trip reports on Forums because they are much more accurate and less BS than the popular FB sites. Something to be proud of. Keep up the good work.
    Information from other websites is often wrong or in question, so don't quote these for authority. When in doubt, leave it out.

    And if you do trespass, make sure you are wearing camo and don't post about it!
    JUST KIDDING!
    This is a timely post because as Jim mentioned, there are several areas that were once thought to be legally accessible that have recently been identified as either not legal or in one case, definitely not clear based on conflicting information from tax maps, DEC, and property owners. So when in doubt, just avoid the route.

      WELL SAID!
