Hiking Solitude on a Holiday Weekend

“Hiding in plain sight! Hike on Little Porter from The Garden parking lot on the Sunday of Memorial Day week-end. Parking lots full, but no one on this trail or the summit. Spectacular views, and (so far) no bugs. Field testing SCARPA Terra boots (the right choice). There are lots of these hidden Gems in the high Peaks. Come on into the Mountaineer and we will share our favorites. No promises about the bugs or the weather!”
