Nimham Mountain State Forest Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A relatively short trip to Nimham’s summit allows you take in the sweeping views of the eastern mid-Hudson from the recently restored fire tower, one of the tallest in the state. the hinterlands of Putnam County, since both were used for the name of the Munsee chief who once owned the land and fought in court, unsuccessfully, to get it back. After using “Ninham” for many years, New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) now calls it Nimham Mountain State Forest, per a consensus among local historians that that is the more correct spelling."
