Description:  Graham Mountain is one of two Catskill peaks on private property. There is an old road to the summit, which is not maintained.

Abandoned Building on Summit of Graham

The summit offers an open view to the western Catskills.  Best access is from the west using the Dry Brook Ridge Trail from Mill Brook Road and then the abandoned road to the summit.  Access is also from Seager and Turner Hollow or via a bushwhack from Doubletop Mountain.

Since access is across private property, please respect the rights of the landowner so as to help ensure continued access by hikers.

Contact the caretaker Bill Scholl at (845) 586-4056 before climbing Graham since the summit and approach is on private land.
