A 4,000 foot Catskill peak and one of the Northeast 111 in an easy day hike up to a great fire tower lookout. This is the most difficult route up Hunter Mountain but also the shortest climbing 2,000 feet in just 2 miles! The top of this mountain has a little cabin, picnic table and a great fire tower you can climb for unbelievable views in all directions and down to the ski trails lower on the mountain.
this was a very hard hike. I do not recommend for anyone who struggles with steep inclines. although it is very hard it is a very good short day hike. also very busy fire tower. the signs were a little confusing near the top and do not agree well with the official trail map but after a few back tracks we found it. was a little disappointed with the trash on this trail, please leave no trace!!
