Hike to Meade & Beckman Mountain

Rate this Adventure New York Meade/Beckman Mountian Trailhead

Added by Rebecca Nichols

Great view of all the slopes at Gore Mountain Ski Resort! 

The parking area is along Igerna Road and offers space for about four vehicles.  The trail and register start from the parking lot.  Please keep in mind this is someones private property allowing you access.  Respect the landowners and stay on trail.  Remember always leave no trace!

The trail has a few moderately steep sections.  At the summit of Meade there will be a bench and interpretive sign to tell you what mountains you are looking at.  This is one of the best views of Gore allowing you to see the Ski slopes.

After enjoying the views continue along trail with a slight descent and ascent to Beckman Mountain.  Along the top there are many view points!  You will then retrace your steps heading back over Meade and descending to the parking lot.

This trail is also part of the Chester Challenge.  This challenge also includes Kipp, Green Hill/Catamount & Stewart Mountains, Chester Creek Trail, Palmer Pond, Cougar Nature Trail & Dynamite Hill/Caroline M. Fish Memorial Trails.  Visit any six of these trails and you can receive your choice of pin or patch for your completion.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
