Quick Reference Summary: Galkin Trail
Total distance: 1.03 miles (1.66 kilometers)
Total hiking time: approximately 20 minutes
The Galkin Trail begins at the fork in the road in the Curtis Tract and bears right (northeast) to pass by the C.D. Keegan Cabin on the right (east) and then site of the Fuller Cabin on the left (west). From a fork in the road, the left-hand (northern) branch, the Galkin Trail, leads to Anthony Acres. Hiking time from start of the trail to the fork is about 4 minutes.
Starting as a dirt road, the route becomes a trail after passing by a latrine and some clearings used by leadership training programs. The trail leads to a plank bridge and an old homestead about 0.3 mile (0.5 kilometer) or 8 minutes beyond the fork. The cellar hole is on the left (west). The Galkin crosses another plank bridge in about 3 minutes and connects with the Tippecansett Trail in an area called Walnut Grove, after another 2 minutes.
Hikers may return to Camp Yawgoog the way they came, or turn left (west) and follow the Tippecansett Trail then turning left (south) on the former mountain biking path, which connects to the Blue/Freeman Trail.
