Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with Dan. Although we've both hiked this before, we had to do it again for Andy's new Catskills Fire Tower Challenge. This was our 2nd hike in that series.

We saw several people on this trail today. At the top there were several other people and 2 lost dogs. They had them tied to the picnic table. The summit steward said he was going to take them down with him if no one came up to claim them. I believe he said they tried calling around to find the owners, but hadn't had any luck yet.
