Ascent Trip Report

Hiked in from the Pike Brook Road PA along the 6.7 mile loop route. The weather was fine until we heard the distant rumble of thunder as we enjoyed the views from the summit just below the fire tower and windmill. The rain held off until the last mile, but the last half hour was hiked in a deluge. The views are well worth the trip.

Adirondack/Catskill Fire Tower #4.
