Alder Creek Rd parking Trail 'Y' to Balsam Lake Mtn
We parked at Alder Lake then Hiked The Mill Brook Ridge Trail to The Balsam Lake FireTower in Hardenburg, NY. Sorry for the confusion, but I did post my comment on the Catskill Trail page.

What trail are you talking about?
You refer to a hike from Arden Brook to the fire tower, but Arden Brook is in Harriman, not in the Catskills, and there is no fire tower on Balsam Mountain. Moreover, the trails up Balsam Mountain are heavily used and not overgrown. You must be talking about some other hike, not the one described here.

Help where are the Volunteers
Just a note for those trail maintainers. We hiked from Arden Brook to the FireTower on Saturday 8.15.15. The trail was well marked with trail markers nailed into trees. The actual trails were almost totally overgrown. As if we were the first Hikers to have been there in a couple of years. Please help, the trail was unnavigable except for the Advanced Hiker
