Trail closure - The NYSDEC has announced that the Scarface Trail is closed due to unsafe public use of the bridge. The bridge and the Scarface Mountain Trail will remain closed out of an abundance of caution until the structure is replaced, which is expected sometime next year (2024). Planning is underway to replace the bridge. Users should not attempt to use the bridge or cross the brook on foot.
An important notice regarding Baker Mountain - If you are planning to hike Baker Mountain, please plan ahead as parking at the trailhead is extremely limited. It is recommended that you park downtown and walk or bike the short-mile distance to the trailhead.
