Ascent Trip Report

1:20ish up and down. The AMC map says 4.2 miles, the trail says 5 miles, so good luck figuring out how far you actually went. No idea how I really found the trailhead. I just found a road going north out of Woodstock and went up it until I couldn't go up anymore.

Honestly, after growing up with the Whites and Maine ranges, then living in the Adirondacks and Blue Mountains, the Catskills have kinda been "meh" to me, but this was really a very fun mountain. Only people I saw were half a mile from the parking lot. Also, the old hotel is still in really good shape and kinda reminds me of Jumanji. Fire tower and summit were also pretty neat. One of my favorite mountains so far this year, would suggest.
