Two hikes first Pillsburry Fire Tower is 3.4 miles with 1469' gain in elevation then on the way back we will stop at Auger falls.


Hiking boot/shoes are highly recommended. Bring lunch, plenty of water and carpool $.

This is not a beginner hike. Any questions about your ability you can reach me at[masked], if you need to reach me the day of the hike my cell is[masked] (NOTE I don't have cell service where I live). Although I love dogs they are not allowed this hike. Look into Capital District Canine Hikes for hiking with dogs.

Inclement weather will postpone this hike.


I may meet you at the trail head 9:45.


Directions to trail head: From the junction of NY 30 and NY 8 in Speculator, drive north on NY 30 to Perkins Clearing Road and make a sharp left turn (just after passing Mason Lake). Follow this dirt road for 3.3 miles to a junction marked by a signpost and turn right.

Go 1.8 miles to another junction (just after the Sled Harbor clearing on the left) and turn right again. Drive 1.2 miles to the end of the road. There is parking for 10-15 cars at the end of the road. Because this last road is a bit rough, some people park at Sled Harbor and walk from there. However the road can be driven by most cars with caution.

How to find us:Look for the Blue Chevy Impala
