Overlook Mountain Hike Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"While the southern approach to Overlook Mountain is perhaps the most popular peak climb in the entire Catskills, this hike offers an alternative approach, arriving from the north. The route is indeed longer, but it offers a comfortable grade, pleasant backdrop, points of interest, and fewer travelers.
A detour en route finds charming Echo Lake, another endorsement. But however you choose to reach the mountaintop, the lookout tower, now in its second life thanks to dedicated volunteers, caps the journey with grand overlooks of the Catskill neighborhood."
