While the Overlook Trail is not very challenging, it provides great opportunities that many trails do not in the Catskill Region. The trail is a old road that leads to a recently-restored fire tower that is now open to the public and staffed by an interpreter on weekends. You also pass by ruins of the famous Overlook Hotel, which when in operation was the highest (elevation) such large hotel in the State. The trail is often crowded on weekends because of its proximity to Woodstock - however construction of a new parking area/trailhead is in the planning stages. Incredible views of the Hudson Valley, Catskill High Peaks, and Ashokan Reservoir await. You will enjoy!
