Bramley Mountain Trails | Friday, October 7, 2016 10:00 am

Join Paul Martin on a hike on the recently opened Bramley Mountain Trail.   The hike will visit the 2817’ summit with its site of a former fire tower, a beautiful abandoned bluestone quarry, and the impressive cliffs and caves that lie between. The hike to the quarry is on a woods road with little elevation gain, making an easy hike of about .9 miles. After the quarry, the trail continues as a foot path designed to gradually ascend about 1.2 miles through mixed hardwoods while passing stone walls and many impressive rock outcroppings and cliffs, some with caves.  The hike will descend the mountain on the Summit Trail, a1.8 mile long direct hike on old woods roads, with its views to the west and to the southern high peaks, and Mount Pisgah.  It has some steep pitches alternating with long gentle climbs. This route offers the best views of all the sights this trail has to offer.

The Bramley Mountain Trail is the fifth addition to the hiking options in the Catskills designed and built by the Catskill Mountain Club. It is located on a NYC DEP parcel in the Towns of Delhi and Bovina, totaling about 4 miles in length.
