fire tower, great views, easy hike Located near Austerlitz, Beebe Hill rises only 300 feet above the surrounding area. If you climb its fire tower though, you will be rewarded with great views. Begin by walking SW along the gravel road at the end of the pond. You can walk all the way to the top of the hill on this road. Instead though, take the foot trail that begins shortly on the right and which is a much more enjoyable walk. The trail, marked with red discs, passes through a mostly hard wood forest and climbs gradually to the top of the hill. After the sign-in register, you will cross a small creek on a foot bridge. You pass the "Chance of Thunder Lean-Too" and then a small pond (Opal Pond). Soon you are at the top of the hill. If you are not afraid of heights, climb the fire tower and enjoy the magnificient views. The Catskill mountains are clearly visible to the south. Return by the same trail.

Great trail for a quick hike and a little exercise. Ferns cover the forest floor, shelter and fire tower at the top. A little hike with a bit of everything.

This is an easy quick hike. Beautiful views from the tower. Trail was flooded in a few spots.

Quick, fun. Very icy & muddy on an unseasonable 70 degree February day - spikes would have helped a lot. Still only took around an hour and a half. More wildlife tracks than human, and great views from the tower!

With the snow and ice I did lose the trail a few times in the middle. Keep a good eye. Nothing cool about getting lost on a mile-long trail!

I love this trail, my family and I use it atleast 2-3 a week during warm weather months. It is great for dogs. There is a small pond located near the top of the trail, by the firepower. There is also a cool campsite area with a lean-to and a fire pit if you are looking to camp. I have not explored any of the side trails yet, just the main foot path.

Short hike at about a mile to the fire tower. The views are great about 2/3 the way up the tower. If you do not like to climb towers there are no views. There are also a few other trails around the parking lot that gave me 3 miles total and a pretty old burial ground. Nice little hike that took me about 1.5 hours with my additional trails.
