    Hi is there someone who as a place to suggest to me to go for Vacations.
    I leave in Montreal and I want to go trekking one week(4 nights) with my girl friend.
    Something like 50 miles with our backpacks only. Does someone have an awsome park to suggest to me near the Canadian border,VT,NH,NY or Maine.I talked with her about going northern Quebec but going US could be a great change and I could practice my english at the same time.
    Is there places were I can have my fishing rod on my back pack and take one or two trouts for a lunch during the trip?:p

    I'm waiting for your suggestions! I never went for
    trekking in the US before and I need good advises.

    p.s: I also consider mountain biking/camping options

    No but it can be a good Idea to go there.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Last time I went to N-B I was 4 years old.A shame because my aunt lives in Petit-Rocher.(Baie des Chaleurs)

    Pardon me my ignorance but how many times it took to go there from Mtl?

    Is that the best link to get the infos? http://www.canadatrails.ca/hiking/nb/fundyfootpath.html

    The Adiondacks provide hikes at any level. Start at The Garden and hike out of the Loj Road near Lake Placid or the reverse.

    Heres a link for some great hikes

    Here's where to park your CARS. There are lots of places to start.

    I recommend the Great Range if you are in good shape.

    http://www.adirondackjourney.com Has all the info you'll need. Bring a compass, check the weather, and prepare for hell.

    Want something a little less strenuous?
    http://www.adirondackjourney.com/Lake_Colden_Flowed_Lands.htm

    Find your way from the Upper Works (in Newcomb area) following the Opalescent river and go to Avalanche lake and end at Heart Lake. There are a million lean-to shelters out there. But, dont to what I did last time and try to find them at night, by wading in chest deep water, when already freezing cold.

    Here's how this guy ranks the high peaks in the adirondacks- and I tend to Agree.
    Gothics is the most spectacular place. You can not believe how big it is.

    And for more info
