    Challenging but very fun hike. Moderately steep 3.4 miles to Wittenberg summit with epic 180 degree+ views. Continuing another mile or so to Cornell you must traverse a fairly tight scramble known as the Cornell Crack. I had no trouble but others in my party had reservations, so I dropped a rope to give them some assurance on the way up. Our dog also needed a boost up; it was harder for her on the way down. Cornell has very limited views. After the return trip down to Woodland Valley we had a nice birthday celebration in the parking lot. Note that parking at the state park is $6 per car. Bathrooms and water available there.

    North bound leg (ES, Blue) to North point was great, terrific views and good trail. A few 10 foot scrambles but not hard. The south bound leg (MG, Red) back to the camp was rocky and rough. There is a waterfall close to the camp area but it was dry in late summer.

    This hike is on private land and requires permission in advance. Starting from the Seager trailhead proceed on the yellow-blazed Seager-Big Indian trail. The first mile is very gradual as you proceed up the stream valley. There are stream crossings at around 0.25 miles (Flatiron Brook) 0.9. miles (Shadaken Brook) that can be tricky during periods of high water. At 1.05 miles reach a bridge marked private. About 50 feet past this bridge on the right begins the unmarked herd path to Doubletop Mountain. During our early summer hike the trail was easy to find most of the way. The route remains pretty easy for the first half mile then begins a steep ascent through hardwoods. There are two sections of ledges you must get through or around, but they are not too bad. When you start seeing thick conifers you were getting near the summit. Finding the canister can be a little confusing since there are several herd paths on top. There is no view from the wooded summit which is reached at about 2.5 miles. We enjoyed this hike. The lack of view from the summit was more than made up for by the beautiful stream vistas on the way up.

    Nice hike. A little muddy in parts. Some sort of stinging nettles on the path up to Beaverkill lookout. Nice beaver dam on the way back to little pond campground. Did this with 2 8 year olds and they really liked it.

    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.

    Lots of muddy spots from previous rain. Definitely take the blue trail up and the red trail down!

    Hiked in winter with half-inch of snow. The biggest challenge for this hike is negotiating the multiple water crossings--with medium or high water a few crossings can be dicey with few options for rock-hopping. Very modest elevation gain for the first 2 miles as the trail follows an attractive stream. Solid footing through the steeper section as the trail climbs out of the hollow. Very peaceful, easy climb from the col to Eagle Mt summit. No views. Overall, a pleasant walk in the woods. Great option for beginning snowshoeing.

    This is one of the easier hikes I’ve done in the Catskills. I got immediately off trail (which is easy to do at the start) and walked into Elm Ridge Forest, passing a long line of dramatic rock outcroppings. (I would recommend doing this: take a slight left at the sign for the LEAN TO.) Back on the main trail, there are some beautiful woods to walk through, especially two tall hardwood forests which were really magical; I’ll come here again just to walk through these two stands. Some views of the Blacks on the way up to the summit which is flat and exposed, with wonderfully gnarly trees on either side of the trail. On a clear day, the view north from the eastern ledge must be pretty good.

    The first part of the hike was quite icy at times to the point where hiking without spikes would require going off trail. The second half after turning right on the huckleberry point trail was relatively ice free and gradual. Great hike, not too strenuous and a great view at the end
