    This trail leads to Graham Mt (PRIVATE- advance permission required.) Start at the DEC parking area at the end of Beaverkill Road. Take the Dry Brook Ridge trail (blue markers) which follows an old road with a gentle ascent. Pass the red trail to Balsam Lake Mt on your left at 0.9 and again at 1.9 miles. The herd path to Graham is about 0.25 miles further on the right bearing E-SE. The path is very easy to follow, mostly easy grades with steeper pitches toward the summit. Reach the vegetated summit at about 4 miles. Ruins of an old radio transmitter station on top. Very limited views in summer.
