Great hike up. Very challenging. Views from FIRETOWER were phenomenal. Trail a bit slick from recent rains. A must do for the FIRETOWER Challenge.

A pretty challenging hike for me, but I was a little disappointed with the views; the tree line blocks most of it. The top of the firetower was locked when I went, but I was able to climb up most of the way, and from there you can see a better view.

Hiked it with my two sons. Tough with loose stones covered in leaves but we had a great time.

Not the most exciting trail. The footing is a little tough. Nice views from the tower.

One of the harder fire towers trails in the catskills and Adirondacks. Beautiful view from the tower.

Hike was not very challenging but just required stamina as it was loose shale all the way to the top. Fire tower provided a very nice view of the Catskills

Hard at first but not too difficult. Pretty view from the fire tower.

Trail was all loose shale the whole way, the views from the summit are okay at best as the tree line continues to grow higher. We had a great night camping on the mountain though. We also has a bear sighting on our descent from the top, so be mindful of that possibility
