Ascent Trip Report

The Biscuit Brook TH is on Hwy 47 that runs thru the the middle of the Catskills, between Hwy 55 and Hwy 28. I went up through Grahamsville and Claryville from the south, and left through Big Indian on the North.

Went to the summit, and beyond about 1/2 mile. The summit trail is an unmarked use trail off to the right, about 1/3 mile after you reach the ridge and turn north toward the summit. If you start going seriously downhill, you missed it.
