Denver Valley Trail

The Denver Valley in the Town of Roxbury is one of the more off the beaten path destinations on this list.  But don’t let that fool you, it’s a popular area anchored by Roxbury Run.  Surrounded by many lesser peaks, it leads to the base of Bearpen Mountain, a Catskills High Peak. The route is mostly a gentle one with a few short steeper climbs.   From SR 30 in Margaretville travel north to Denver-Vega Rd. (Rte. 36) at Kelly Corners. Turn east and look for a good place to park your car on the side of the road.  At Vega Mountain Rd. continue straight on Sally’s Alley to its end. The ride one way is about 9.5 miles.
