Accessing Doubletop & Graham: Latest Details

Latest notes from The Catskill 3500 Club who oversee the management and maintenance of the canisters on our untrailed peaks… Doubletop & Graham Caretaker Contact Information Change Due to the amount of people reaching out to the caretaker for hikes to these two mountains, he is revising the procedure for getting permission to hike on these privately-owned lands.

Thru-Hike Doubletop, Graham & Balsam Lake

This hike really has it all: stream crossings, herd paths, bear prints, a canister, a memorably steep descent, a true bushwhack, a rugged ascent, an ice grotto, some old ruins and, to top it all off, a fire tower with amazing sunset views.

Hike Doubletop from Seager

My favorite part of this hike was actually the first mile of trailed section along Dry Brook, heading southeast from the parking area. By mid-June the banks on both sides of the brook are lush. All along the stream feels wild and natural, and the crossings are a lot of fun.

Permission is Required

Both Graham and Doubletop are on privately owned land and advance permission is required to hike both peaks. You can find the latest caretaker details and permission information here.

 Seasonal Notes for Doubletop

Winter/Snow

The last section of Dry Brook Road is unmaintained dirt road. In the winter, depending on your car’s capabilities and the depth of snow, you may not be able to drive all the way to the trailhead. In which case, park elsewhere considerately and hike in.
