Broughton Ledges Trail


Description: Enjoy this 6.2-mile loop trail near Moriah, New York. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 2 h 42 min to complete. A perfect trail for getting deep in the woods in some wild backcountry. The first two miles involve a fair amount of steep climbing that includes an interesting view of Ensign Pond and some low mountains in the Hammond Pond Wild Forest. The second stage of the hike is a big four-mile loop that walks below the massive Broughton Ledges. Much of this part of the hike is on old tote roads through beautiful mature forests.
