Smith Pond Trail

This 1.1 mile trail runs from a trailhead on SR 28 opposite the Delaware Academy to a trailhead on Back River Rd./Arbor Hill Rd.  It follows the West Branch of the Delaware River through grasslands and mixed forest. This is an easy hike.  A connector trail leads to a crossing of SR 28 at Back River Rd., making a loop hike with the lower Gribley Trail possible .


The Delhi Trails are a system of four trails on Mt. Crawford in the Village of Delhi. Built and maintained by the Catskill Mountain Club, The 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 5.4 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 three miles. The Bulldog Run can be combined with a section of the Gribley to create a loop hike.  The Frightful Falls Trail is a short connector, the steepness of which makes its name seem appropriate.  And the Smith Pond Trail sits in the river valley on the west side of SR 28.
