Ascent Trip Report

I followed the Becker Hollow trail from NY-214 and found the trail to be in great condition. It took about 1h20m to ascend to the fire tower and 1h10m to descend. Views were quite good, albeit hazy, from the top of the tower (The platform is locked, however...).

I would highly recommend this route for a quick hike.

RT was 5.2 miles and gain was around 2200'.
