It’s time to hit the trails. With the favorable weather and plenty of sunshine, now is the perfect time to hop on a bicycle or slip into some hiking shoes and explore the natural wonders of Old Forge and its surrounding areas.

Monday, June 12, 2017

When getting ready for your ADK water trip, the first thing you need to do is look down. Yes, look down at your feet. First off, cover them. While barefoot in a kayak or boat may seem like a good idea, you more than likely will end up walking on wet, slippery (and even sharp) rocks.  Don’t go cheap, invest in some study sandals or shoes with good tread. Chaco, Teva, and Keen get the job done for sandals, and Solomon makes a great pair of light shoes that dry fast and have great tread.
