Denman Mountain is located just north of the hamlet of Grahamsville, NY. From Route 55 turn north on Moore Hill Road near the TriValley Central School. Follow this road as it ascends for about 3 miles. Pass the first parking area on the left. At the 3 miles mark the road continues straight ahead as a seasonal road and then dead ends. A paved road turns right. The names of the roads vary from map to map and include Moore Hill Road, Glade Hill Road and Furmans Road. Park in the large parking area on the corner. Walk across the road and into the woods to begin the bushwhack. Denman Mountain is north and slightly west of the parking area. As with all bushwhacks your route may vary. In general head west and then turn north but ALWAYS go UP. You may find some woods roads and paths to help you toward the summit. There are few vies on the way up so just go for the summit. When you think you are at the highest point, continue since there is one more "bump". As always wander around on the top until you think you have the highest point. Start your descent by going a little to the west and then walk south along the high ground. DO NOT descend to the west but to the south. As you walk along the edge, watch for some openings since there are several good viewpoints to the west and north. Pick up the path from the south that you used on the way up. You may also head due east and walk down to the road. The little used road makes a nice walk back to the car.
