Same approach as on the main page, simply take Route 30 from the south going north towards Paul Smiths. When you pass Paul Smiths College, you will see Keeses Mill Road. After driving on Keeses Mill Rd. for 2 1/2 miles, a gravel road will enter on the left. Take this road until it ends after about 1/2 mile at the Camp Topridge Gate. The trailhead is there.
This route is 3.4 miles long, from trailhead to summit, and is an easy hike completed in around 1 hour to 1.5 hours by most people. The going is easy for the most part, but at the end there are a fair amount of rocks and steepness, but nothing that a child could not manage, much less an adult. In the summer the trail is filled with lush, green vegetation. The trail is marked by New York State DEC markers, and is very well maintained and used.
All you need to bring is the right clothing. While a t-shirt and shorts or pants is comfortable and effective in the summer, winters in New York get very cold and there is lots of snow.
If you have information about this route that doesn't pertain to any of the other sections, please add it here.
