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.

We took our small dog up the trail and he was totally fine with the difficulty. It's a dog friendly trail too!

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!!
