Delhi Trails (Mt. Crawford)

The Catskill Mountain Club opened another new trail system, this one in Delhi. The three trails, two named for characters in the novel My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George and one in honor of the Delaware Academy mascot Bulldogs, together cover about 4.5 miles and offer the option of shorter hikes of varying degrees of difficulty. The longer Gribley Trail crosses the mountain ridge above the village in a little over three miles. The Bulldog Run can be combined with a section of the Gribley to create a loop hike of over two miles. And the Frightful Falls Trail is a short connector, the steepness of which makes its name seem appropriate.

There is parking for the trails at the end of Sheldon Drive, at Immanuel Lutheran Church and at O’Connor Hospital. Use the O’Connor Hospital parking lot when church services or events are going on.
