Points of Interest

1. Sewards Trailhead

No fees to park here. It is a large parking lot with a trail register. From here you will start off on the Blueberry Foot Trail towards the Ward Brook Trail.

2. Campsite area

This is where I would suggest setting up a campsite wherever you can find a good place. It will be your choice from here whether you want to climb Seward, Donaldson, Emmons first or Seymour. The shorter one would be to climb Seymour. You'll find the herdpath for Seymour by continuing down the old Ward Brook Trail and following the track in... More

3. Seward Mountain Summit

At 4,347 feet you are the highest point in the Seward Range. This summit is wooded but there are views just south of the true summit over Seymour towards Lake Placid.

4. Donaldson Mountain Summit

At 4,108 feet you are at the summit of Mt. Donaldson. The summit has some great views to the east.

5. Emmons Mountain Summit

At 4,039 feet you are the southernmost peak of the Seward Range. You'll have good views back over the range and towards Seymour even though the summit wooded. Head back down the same way you came up back to camp.

6. Seymour Mountain Summit

At 4,091 feet you are the summit of Seymour, the last (or the first depending on how you decide to climb) Seward Range mountain. You'll follow part of a slide to get to the top of this peak. The summit of this mountain is very wooded and very unrewarding, but heck, you just got another 46er under yer belt!
