Adirondack Conditions post Irene

Postby Castlereagh » Mon Aug 29, 2011 3:26 am

I'd been planning to check out a few peaks Labour Day weekend...now I'm worried that blowdown and other debris from Irene might make already rough conditions worse. If any SP'ers are hiking in the area any updates as to trail conditions would definitely be appreciated!

Monitor this page: it'll be the first place you see trail condition reports.

Many reports of bridges out and other severe flood damage in the Eastern high peaks region around Keene Valley and St. Huberts. Road access to Adirondack Loj also compromised:

ugh, it looks like every road, trail, herd path, and their mothers are out of commission.

Still, I wonder if any of the clean up crews they'll have this coming weekend will have enough leeway to sneak up a peak or two in between picking up branches

Apparently the Western areas of the park fared a little better.

Any hardy souls want to check out the Santanoni's or the Sewards?

Pretty interesting pictures of the new slides.
I am glad I got up Trap Dyke in late July. It looks a little muddy right now.
