This is a short hike up to some great overlooks over both Moreau Lake to the east and the Hudson River to the west This is an easy hike appropriate for young children or older parents to get them out into the woods for some nice views. The overlook is on Palmertown Mountain.

It's a quick hike and an incredible view of Moreau Lake. A pretty consistent incline, but not difficult. Great spot for pictures and a picnic at the top.

Get a map from New York State website. At least 17 miles of trails. It was fun to do

Very well marked trail, rocky and steep at times, but very pretty. We did it with our 2 kids (2 and 4). It's doable, but demanding.

Great hike! Quite steep, beautiful view at top. Trail was very dry, even after a lot of rain yesterday.
