  1. My sister & I travel up from New York (Syracuse area) every Autumn to camp for a week. This will be our 7th year. We always grab a site, and we cram in as many day hikes as we can. We’ve talked about backpacking, and have even made a few equipment purchases, but we’re nowhere near ready yet. We’d start out small…just to see how we’d do.

    Any advice would be most welcome. We’re not triathletes by any stretch of the imagination. We just love Algonquin, and would be interested in exploring more of it…off the beaten path.
