Linus and Fielden Stream

This blog came to life to share our love for nature and living a more basic life through hiking and backpacking.

We love meeting new friends on the trail, sharing our stories, and exploring the beautiful parts of our country that are becoming more and more rare.

More recently, Linus has taken on various roles in the local Appalachian Mountain Club chapter to give back to the natural resources he so loves, to help protect them and the valuable experience they provide humanity for generations more to come. They are more threatened than ever in our current political landscape. So some of the blog now covers his adventures and roles to protect and educate on the Appalachian Trail corridor in southern New England.

Welcome. We hope you enjoy reading about the adventures as much as we enjoy doing them.

  1. Linus,

    Thank you for your description and photos on NY Section 5. We’ll be hiking it this coming Saturday (3/19). My AT map shows the trail from Hosner Mt. Road to Route 52. But, the on-line maps I’ve looked at don’t show that portion of the trail. It was very confusing and a bit disconcerting. Anyway, your trail report and photos confirm that the trail is there and that it’s a pleasant hike. Best to you and Fielden Stream.

  2. Came across your blog via White Blaze.net. Saw you had been on the AT between Sages Ravine and Jug End Road. Heading up there this weekend and a bit concerned about water. We’re also hoping to stay at Race Brook Falls site. You mentioned water was a bit tight there. I’m not familiar with the area, but were the falls themselves also low and slow? I know they are expecting some T-storms tonight. Hopefully that’ll help. Was hoping to just respond to you on whiteblaze, but I have not been approved by the admin yet.


    • Sages is good , so is bear rock stream . Race brook where we spent the night did have water in it . It wasn’t really moving much though and we found one spot where it was to collect but there was more than enough water last weekend if you’re not super picky . We didn’t bother going down to the falls though since it was so low and slow at the campsite . Someone has lots of water in coolers at the picnic area on Everett which was good . The water sources by hemlocks and glen brook were super dry . Hope that helps
