I was planning on doing a traverse of the Great Range at the end of August and was wondering if anyone could answer a few questions for me? I was thinking of doing this as a 3 day 2 night with my cousin and since I have not been up there I was curious about a few things. I picked up the ADK guide for the high peaks, but it still does not answer everything.
Our intended route is to start off at the Rt73 lot and go over Rooster Comb, Hedgehog, LWJ, UWJ, Armstrong, Gothics, Saddleback, Basin, Little Haystack, Haystack, a possible stop at Skylight, Marcy and then a possible trek over Big Slide and the Brothers while ending up at the Garden parking lot.
- First off, what is the best way to get from the garden parking lot to the rt 73 lot?
- What has been the availability of water so far this season?
- I am still trying to calculate mileage and was not sure where to set up camp for the 2 nights. I was thinking about the first night somwhere around Panther Gorge and the second somewhere around the JBL. Any suggestions?
If anyone can give me a hand with any of the above it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
