    Total length of Coreys road ~9 km.
    4 km till 1 lane bridge/plow turnaround/winter parking/gate (they are rather close to each other).
    5 km of a road that may not be plowed and may be even locked.
    I just eyeballed this route on Google maps in advance of my trip.

    Curious on actual distances from summer lot to 1) winter lot, 2) Previously mentioned bridge, 3) plow turn around, and 4) gate. Trying to visualize all these potential starting points and struggling to do so. Not sure I have these in location order

    Coreys Rd. yesterday (?) has been plowed till the one lane bridge.
    it's also plowed till summer parking.
    Regular car is sufficient to get to the summer parking lot till the next major snowfall.

    So the winter parking area is about three miles from the summer parking area (plz confirm if accurate). If the road is not plowed, how far from actual available parking to summer parking? And where’s the gate in all this. I realize it’s open but didn’t realize still have to shuffle to summer lot.

    Maybe linear…what’s the distance between summer parking and winter parking and gate and parking if gate closed (4 points maybe not in the order). 5 points if the plow turnaround if different. I feel I am over complicating sorry.

    jan 6 edit, looking to better understand all these four or five points along the road inc mileage, any takers? Thanks!

    Not quite. The snow plow turn around is before the "winter parking" lot. The "winter" lot is shortly after the one lane bridge SeaLevel referenced and used to access Raquette Falls on foot (in case you're looking at a map for reference). On Friday, 12/24, Corey's road was plowed and sanded until the one lane bridge. As SeaLevel mentioned, after that, unplowed, unconsolidated snow on the road 3+ miles to the "Summer Trailhead".

    This trip being my first time to the Seward Trailhead, I believe the snowplow turnaround could be the same as winter parking. Others with more frequent use of this area would be more helpful in answering your question.

    I was basing my observation on the fact you could see markings on the top of the snow between tires ruts where lower clearance cars had leveled the accumulation. Corey's road was plowed and sanded to the snowplow turnaround. I would assume the friend who lives on Corey's Road is observing their immediate surroundings. Not sure what has happened from 12/21 to 12/27 in the north country regarding precipitation.

    Yes. Corey's Road is open this winter. Will not close the gate until mud season starts.

    Headed in to spend a night in the Seward Range on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Is there any update on:
    1. Corey's Road being open or closed?
    2. Snow conditions/depth - hoping to pull a pulk rather than carry all the overnight gear.
    Thank all for any intel.

    Not directly related, but the signage they have (at least here in the Catskills) leaves much to be desired. My quip is that the signs are there to teach you not to believe them!
