Guided Hike to Balsam Lake Mountain Fire Tower

Co-led by Melissa Goodwin, head guide and owner of Girl Gotta Hike, and Catskills Visitor Center staff, this 6-mile out and back hike will take us to the top of Balsam Lake Mountain to climb the fire tower and enjoy the views.

A great way to work on completing the 2022 Catskill Fire Tower Challenge, which is organized by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.

We’ll meet at 8:45am on Sunday, August 7th at the Dry Brook Ridge trailhead located on Mill Brook Road in Arkville, NY. Registration is required and spots are limited!

Please email or call the Visitor Center at 845-688-3369 to sign up!
