    Emily Sweatman reviewed Ampersand Mountain Trail

    9 months ago

    Completed this trail 2 days ago. Trail is found across the road from the designated parking area. The first mile is pretty easy with a couple small bridges to cross. After about a mile on the trail the incline begins. As you climb, the rocks are placed like a stairway but at times is difficult to follow going up. Coming down is much easier to follow. As you get closer to the top, the trail is not marked well. There was a large boulder I thought I needed to climb over but the trail went left instead of right. The way it looked the trail could have went either way. I thought this was a physically demanding hike and would consider myself fairly in shape. Also, closer to the summit, the mud was in abundance. It took me just over 2 hours to complete going up and an hour to go down. The views as you arrive to the peak are breathtaking! 360 views plus the fall leaves made for some amazing photos!

    Not a bad trail. Quite muddy in spots. We hiked the yellow trail which is the longer of the two. Near the top you have a steeper scramble but doable. I hiked this with my 20lb 9 month old on my back and was not too difficult. I would wait to hike the trail until the mud dries up.

    Not a bad hike. Definitely an easier trail with a gradual incline up the mountain. While hiking, you will see two old abandon cabins. When you get to the second one you are almost to the top; within minutes. You can get into the top of the fire tower and the views are amazing! We went at the peak of fall and it was beautiful!

    Not a bad trail. The view at the top was not as expected. If you are going with small children or do not like a steep climb, I would suggest using the trail to the left where it looks like the trail splits. We took the main trail to the right on the way up which was pretty steep then took the alternate trail down which was fairly easy.

    Very easy trail. Well marked. Follow the #10 trail signs to the top and make sure to sign the book in the fire tower. Ok views from the top but worth the trip.

    Steep climb to the top with minimal views unless you climb the fire tower. The tower is in poor shape and the cab at the top is locked.

    Very easy trail to hike however at times the trail is hard to find due to missing trail markers. Overall nice view from the top.

    Emily Sweatman reviewed Woodhull Mountain Firetower

    about 2 years ago

    Just finished this hike two days ago. After reading several reviews on how to access this trail, it still took a bit of time to find the second trail head. I had found it at the second stop barrier sign on the dirt road. At this point I had decided to tackle Remsen Falls then proceed with Woodhull. The falls were ok but not anything spectacular to look at. The trail to Woodhull was fairly flat, much like a tractor path, until you crossed the wood foot bridge. After this point, the trail was overgrown and not well maintained. Some of the trail markers are missing which made it difficult at times to keep to the trail. Once at the fire tower, the views were far from amazing. The tower was in rough shape and locked. So no good views to be had. I guess on a good note, I can check this tower off my list.
