Family hike

What a beautiful hike and site. I'd recommend going on a clear not to hot day with great visibility.

I recently went back to hike overlook mountain in Woodstock . It's great to fit in when you're visiting the area since you can do the loop trail from the Tibetan monastery parking lot in under 4 hrs . It's considered a relatively easy hike but still realize the entire way up is exactly that . Up. But it's only... More

We took this 6 mi round trip hike. It was a gradual uphill hike all the way on a gravel, sometimes rough trail. Lot of trees to make it scenic. We enjoyed exploring around the burned remains of an historic hotel about 2/3 the way up. The views from the top were very nice. We did see one large rattlesnake... More

Great uphill hiking with breathtaking vistas. Bring supplies and good shoes as the trails are somewhat long.

Hike gets easier after 1.5 miles. View is worth the effort. Initial hike is steep. Bring enough food and water. Fire tower is scary. Total trip time was 3:45 min with group of friends. Total time may differ.

Steady 2.5 mile climb to the top but so worth it. Loved the abandoned late 19th century hotel near the top. Climb the fire tower at the top. The views are spectacular. If you have a fear of heights, you won't be able to do it. The overlook the opposite direction of the fire tower had great views and interesting... More

Supposed to be classed as an easy hike HA HA! Well as an unfit 54 year old I can say it was a slog but well worth it, the views from the top were breathtaking( if you've got any breath left). I hiked with 4 others aged 23 to 54 years, we all made it and I'm pleased to say... More

It is a 2.5 mile hike up a gravel path to the summit. It is listed on the Catskills hiking trails site as "easy" and I'm not sure I totally agree with it. The path is certainly level and you don't have to climb around but it is fairly steep the whole way up! Around mile 2 there are ruins... More

Absolutely gorgeous view on the top of the mountain! Nice well maintained path, no rock climbing involved to get to the top, nice and steady steep walk, approximately 3h round trip.
