Ascent Trip Report

Three hour drive from PA to the Batavia Kill parking area. Started hiking the red dot trail at 9am. Turned left onto the blue dot trail which went over Burnt Knob and eventually to the summit. There were some very good views along the way on both sides of the trail. This was Caleb's first Catskill hike. We took a pretty good break on the ledge at the summit and had some food while taking in the view north. After some picture taking we were on our way. We met 2 groups of 2 on our way down, about what we'd expect for a Monday. We got back to the car at about 2pm. It took about 2.5 hours up, and 2.0 hours down. After changing some clothes we were off to McDonalds and our 3 hour ride home. It was a great day of hiking.
