Hiking Trail Description

Doubletop Mountian is currently closed to public hiking.

The drive down from Route 28 passes through Hanley Corner and Mapledale. It’s a really lovely, bucolic area, with rolling hills and working farms and small herds of cows.

Driving south on Dry Brook Road, you’ll pass two covered bridges. The first is on your right. The second (shown below) is on your left. Drive past both bridges.

Park at the trailhead, sign in, and notice the second sign: THIS IS PRIVATE LAND.

Hike Doubletop Mountain

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

 Closed! Graham & Doubletop mountains are no longer accessible to the public. Both mountains are on private land. Trespassers will be prosecuted. The information presented here is for historical puproses only.
