Catskill Fire Towers Maps provided by the Trail Conference
These five maps show trails around popular fire towers in the Catskill Forest Preserve, located on Balsam Lake Mountain, Hunter Mountain, Overlook Mountain, Red Hill, and Tremper Mountain. These maps are provided by the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, and are also available as free app maps on your phone using the Avenza Maps app, so be sure to download them here.
The maps are adapted from Catskill Trails, a six-map set published by the Trail Conference featuring all marked trails in Catskill Park and additional details like elevation contours. It is available in both waterproof/tear-resistant Tyvek print format as well as digital app map format for your phone.
Trails in this park are maintained by Trail Conference volunteers.
Volunteers and member organizations maintain over 200 miles of trail and 30 lean-tos in the Catskill Forest Preserve and along the Long Path north of the park boundary. Learn more about trail and lean-to maintenance, trail crew work, trainings and workshops, conservation and advocacy efforts, events, and other Catskill-related news by clicking here.
