Ascent Trip Report

Came in from Appalachian Trail parking lot. Did the AT to within a few hundred feet of the summit tower then took Shawangunk Ridge Trail across the road for the last little bit. Surprisingly good views from the top considering the height of the peak. Tower looked closed and I think I read somewhere it's only open in the summer. Not too many people on top for a high point that you can drive to on a beautiful fall day, but I suspect that's cause it's Monday.
