Tusten Mountain Trail - Narrowsburg, NY

The Tusten Mountain Trail is a partnership with the Greater New York Council of the Boy Scouts of America. This moderately difficult three mile trail takes you on a loop through historic remains of the Tusten Settlement as you climb to the summit for a magnificent view of the Upper Delaware Valley.

The trailhead is near the Ten Mile River Access on Crawford Road (off Route 97) between Narrowsburg and Barryville, NY.

For Your Safety:

  • Wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots.
  • Sneakers or sandals will not provide proper support.  Well cushioned socks and a hiking stick may be helpful on difficult trails.
  • Bring plenty of drinking water
  • Insect repellant may be needed.  Check yourself for ticks.  If you’re allergic to insects come prepared. 
  • Watch for snakes sunning on exposed rocks. 
  • Keep pets leashed at all times
  • Never feed or disturb wildlife
  • These are carry-in, carry-out trails.  Please don’t litter.

I hiked Tusten Trail on Saturday and was confused where Red Trail heads... I stopped when Red Trail meets a tributary to Delaware River. I can't seem to get information on it. Thanks!
