Ascent Trip Report

Catskills Fire-Tower#4. After Balsam Lake which was almost 6 miles out and back plus the 1 hour drive from there to Red Hill we figured this was going to be a quick 1.4 mile in and out but we were tired and the almost 900 feet in elevation gain made this a little more challenging. Took about 1/2 mile and the legs were loose again. The hike is steady but fast. The views would have been better but by the time we got to the summit the clouds and rain came in so we got some photos from the tower and left.
