Goodnow Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"This modest hike climbs along a nature trail to a 60-foot ?re tower with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, lakes, and ponds. Named for Sylvester Goodnow, a homesteader who settled at the base of the mountain in the 1820s, Goodnow Mountain is the only hike in this book that is not maintained by the NYSDEC, though the state built the fire tower on its summit. The mountain is located in the Huntington Wildlife Forest, which is owned by the State University of New York (SUNY) College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse. The forest is a field station for wildlife research and ecology studies. The trail is maintained jointly by SUNY and the Town of Newcomb. Camping, hunting, and plant collecting are not allowed."
