Lower Dam Trail

This one should be called Salmon River Falls. Good hike from the parking lot to the dam. Got to see the falls, which was really awesome. Loved the gorge trail, made it that much more interesting. If you're just going to see the falls then the trail is paved so don't need special shoes. if you want to go to the dam, hiking boots recommended, as you have cross a few streams to continue.

Lookout Trail Loop

When I pulled up to the road it was a residential neighborhood. I thought the directions were wrong again. So asked around and was led to Nobles Shores Rd, which ends up at Salmon Hills Ski Lodge. I found a trail which was confusing at first. Basically looked like an ATV /Snowmobile trail. After one mile I ended up to the road that the Map originally led me to. So basically instead of going towards the lake I wound up hiking one mile away to a residential neighborhood. There are other trails near the lodge but wasn't kept up. By the looks of it, the trails look like it's meant for the snow season. So left disappointed.

I've hiked this twice! Always an adventure and worth the climb! Careful towards the second tier, it can be dangerous with loose rocks!

If you drive up to the top past the castle there's a parking lot. Park and go down to the right on a short simple trail. Many beautiful views of the Hudson River. Great place for a picnic and doing some water color painting

Great views!
The hike is really about 5 miles according to my Fitbit.
We went when it was wet and it was pretty hard because we kept slipping on the rocks.
I was able to compete it with my two year old in the back pack and 9 yr old.

I loved this hike because it tests you mentally as well as physically on the rock scramble. The adrenaline on the climb was exhilarating and the views at the top were breath taking.

Great view on Wittenberg. A nice loop can be made if doing the Burroughs Range traverse.
