Catskill 3500 Series: Graham & Balsam Lake plus Firetower

  • 5 days ago · 9:30 AM
  • Millbrook Trail Head

This hike will be a semi-loop beginning at the Dry Brook Ridge Trail Head (blue blazes). We will take the Dry Brook Ridge Trail 2.2 miles intersecting with the red blazes to Balsam Lake Mountain trail and visit the fire tower. Retrace our steps back to Dry Brook Trail and on the way back to the parking lot we'll do alittle bushwack to Graham mountain. At the summit we'll inspect the ruins of a post-WW II radio repeater station and reverse our steps back to Dry Brook Trail towards Mill Brook Trail head parking lot.

Miles: 8.8 miles

Start Time: 9:30 AM EST

We will stop for water breaks and body relief:-) and pix at scenic views. It will be cold so we'll hike at a quick pace.

Come prepared for winter conditions.
