Not too strenuous, but amazing views. Not quite as good as the lemon squeezer, but fantastic nonetheless

We were unable to find the trail, so we just started climbing up the mountain and bailed after about quarter of a mile.

Michael Trimbel! I second your review. Your posts are really good. This hike isn't something I'd do just for fun. There is no trail - it's a trip for practicing compass skills and it's only a must if you're aspiring to complete the Catskill 35 (39).

This is a required hike for the 3500 Foot Club (Catskills). It is a trail-less peaks and it entirely uphill from the parking lot to the summit. The ascent is about 1700+ feet in 1.5 miles! Lots of stinging nettles and canes near the summit. I spit-up one of my lungs about half way up this steep mountain. If you find it please let me know. There are limited views from the peak and no entirely clear views. Probably not the sort of hike you'd want to do just for the fun of it. However there is an abundance of small water falls (two different streams) near the base of the mountain that make for good pictures, if you know what you're doing (I don't).
