Doubletop & Graham Permission Protocol

In 2020 a revised procedure was introduced for obtaining permission to hike on these privately-owned lands. Please be respectful of this protocol so that we do not lose access to these two wonderful mountains.

  • Contact the caretaker Bill Fielder at this number only: (845) 586-4099
  • Permission is currently being granted only to hikers who live in neighboring counties
  • This number is a landline / texts will not work
  • The caretaker will respond during Mon-Fri business hours

Important Update

This year, Graham and Doubletop mountains are closed to hikers from November 8 to December 26.

Even before this restriction, permission-to-hike was being granted only to hikers who lived in neighboring counties.

Because of these restrictions, the Catskill 3500 Club has decided to make a temporary adjustment for aspiring club members.

In lieu of Graham and Doubletop, 3500 Club aspirants can instead climb to the summits of Millbrook Ridge and South Doubletop. Both must be hiked via public land only. (And remember, on every hike please leave no trace.)

This temporary adjustment may turn out to be permanent.

Check the 3500 Club’s news page for latest info.
