4-12 inches of fresh snow. Herd path was not broke out. We worked, thanks to our team!!! Marked Trail in was good... a bit beaten up on our way out. We were the only ones on Seymour today! Slide was a bit tricky... we tried to dig in and make steps. There was a group in lean to probably doing the range and one tent.

Easy out and back trail. The Firetower views are phenomenal! Fun hike .

really quick hike for the Tupper Lake Triad in winter . I like that the first part is paved and handicapped accessible. Pretty views of Tupper Lake.

Fun hike! We got a late start so we were glad we had our headlamps. Spikes needed.

Really great trail ! Might be a bit boring for avid hikers since the first half is following a road. Perfect for today because of the snow! Really easy to follow even though we were the first ones out since the snowfall. Some bits were marshy but really easy hike. Super quiet too, it was just us and a dozen deer we counted running around which was cool to see.

Super easy hike, with rewarding views at the summit. There was some overcast today, with some rolling fog. A lot of mud in areas, so if you plan to go in the next couple days, dress accordingly!

This was a long one, as others have stated in the reviews, this is probably for experienced hikers only. I keep noticing that this AllTrails app tracks these trips at several more miles than is initially stated in the trail description. Our recording says this was 19.2 miles... I am not certain I believe that, but it certainly is one of the longer, more technical, muddy hikes I've done. We went in via the Caulkins trail, which is honestly a very easy, non-strenuous approach to Donaldson. Once there, the trip over to Emmons and back for us was about 2.5 hours total. Then the trip over to Seward was a little over an hour. This is where the trip gets fairly technical. The final ascent up Seward and the descent down the other side were very scrambly. Some of the sections here were pretty complicated for my 12 year old's shorter legs, he figured them all out skillfully, but a lot of the obstacles took him several intricate moves, where they were just a big step for my father and I. That added quite a bit to the total time for the day. I can say if this trail is possibly icy, you would not want to be on it without spikes. There is little hope of descending some of these sections with just boots in those conditions. Near the bottom between Seward and the Blueberry Trail, the trail is easy to lose, since it’s totally covered in leaves at this point. Be sure you have a map and compass, GPS is preferable, since it’s a very twisty-turns trail. In the dark, staying on the trail is a tall order, but manageable if you stay vigilant. Once you reach the Blueberry trail it’s a simple flat hike out, though it’s quite muddy, and most of the river crossings are a bit more difficult because the normal rocks are covered by water... just look around a bit, there are other ways, but they’re not the normal crossings.

nice view of the fall foliage.

The Calkins Brook trail is an easier way to Seward if you want to save Seymour for another day. From the cairn near Donaldson it is not a difficult climb to Seward. The trail out to Donaldson from the cairn is very short with one difficult rock to scale. From Donaldson to Emmons are big mud holes. The climbing part of the Calkins Brook trail was so covered in fallen leaves that it was sometimes difficult to find the trail.

easy to follow. great views. sturdy firetower with cute little museum/cabin you can check out.

Loved this trail! I would consider this an easy-moderate; easy for more regular hikers and maybe moderate for families because you have a few tenths of a mile that is a bit steep getting to the first summit. Did this with my 2 pups and we had the trail to ourselves! Starts out on a broad woods road, then the trail cuts in to the woods where it meanders for a short while with little to no elevation gain. Once you begin the ascent, there a few switchbacks. Like so many Dacks hikes, the views are phenomenal. It's about 1.8 miles from the parking area to the first summit, and the trail continues on for another ~8 miles to the south summit. Due to the short nature of this trail, I would say it's very doable for kiddos and definitely a great dog trail, as well.

Really enjoyed Goodman trail! Beautiful trail and views at the top. FYI.... the first .7 miles of the trail is an old paved road, straight, with a slight incline. then a hard right turn to the summit!

If you want a challenge then this range is for you. I hiked the range on 10/12/19 and started at the Seward mountain trail head off Corey's road. I decided to do the range in reverse and start at Seymour and hike Seward, Donaldson and Emmons on my way back to the trail head. I started at 8:00am Hiking out to the base of Seymour was a breeze with gentle declines and inclines. Once at the base of Seymour, elevation is gradually gained until you reach some sheer rock scrambles. Requires some scrambling along the way but a very easy peak to complete. A couple viewpoints on top. Coming down was wet and requires some caution near the rock faces. After Seymour, the Seward mountain trail was an absolute grind. Extremely muddy, wet and rocky. The last 1000ft of the ascent up Seward is just rock scramble after scramble. I slowed to a crawl here and questioned myself if I could finish this range in 1 day. The summit of Seward had little views. Donaldson was next and fairly easy. From Seward it was across a fairly flat ridge with not much elevation gain. Some good vista points around here. Emmons was difficult mentally to complete after tiring from the other peaks. This portion of trail held the deepest mud. From Donaldson you loose a significant amount of elevation that you have to regain to get to Emmons. The way back from Emmons is the same way. With elevation losses that you have to regain. I hiked down the side of Donaldson on the herd path and met up with an unmarked horsetrail to the trailhead. The entire descent was wet muddy and full of slippery leaves. Got into my car at 5:07pm

Climbed Arab with my daughter’s class on 10/11/19. Other than a few muddy spots, the trail was the perfect challenge for the group with a gorgeous view at the top.
