Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"All that keeps this climb of Overlook Mountain from earning an easy rating is its length, which at about 5 miles round-trip may be too long for some families.

On the other hand, there is nothing difficult about this hike, which follows an unplowed access road virtually all the way to the old fire tower. Many people are drawn to Overlook each year for its unparalleled views across the Hudson Valley and much of the Catskill interior."
