Balsam Lake Mountain and Millbrook Ridge

December 8, 2023 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

This all-day hike includes an out and back route to Balsam Lake Mountain and Millbrook Ridge. After a relatively easy hike to the Balsam Lake Mountain summit (and fire tower) we’ll hike the Finger Lakes Trail both ways to the 3465 foot summit of Millbrook Ridge and back. With most of the hike above 3000 feet elevation, winter conditions will likely be present. Snowshoes and spikes will be required. Bright Clothing, especially blaze orange is recommended. This is a 12.8 mile hike with nearly 2700 feet of elevation gain and we will hike at a moderate to quick pace.

This hike is being presented in conjunction with the Adirondack Mountain Club and the Catskill 3500 Club. We strongly encourage you to consider joining these worthy organizations.
