Often paired with a hike to Balsam Lake, the hike to Graham’s summit ends at the incongruous concrete-and-iron ruin of an old TV repeater station. Permission is required to climb Graham and Doubletop mountains.

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.

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.
