Debar Mountain Wild Forest
Debar Mountain features a long 3.7 mile trail to the summit with an overall elevation gain of just over 1600 feet. The fire tower that once stood here is long gone. There are still a few views although the forest is recovering on the summit. The grade is relatively easy for the first 3.2 miles, where you'll reach the lean to. The last 0.5 mile you will climb 800 feet on an extremely steep trail to reach the 3305 foot summit.
To reach the Debar Mountain trailhead travel to Meacham Lake State Campground on NY 30. You reach the campground by heading to St. Regis Falls (NY 11B east to NY 458 South). Then take the Red Tavern Road east to NY 30 and turn right (South) and watch for the campground signs. When the campground is open, there is a day use fee. The trailhead is near campsite 42. Parking is available in an old gravel pit.
