pack a lunch, it is a good hike. big main road and lots of smaller trails on top. great views from the top. some ruins to explore too.
My husband and two sons and I hiked to the top on a beautiful February day. The temperature was in the high 60s. We enjoyed it very much. The ruins of the old hotel at the top were very interesting. Definitely would go back. The trail itself was nice and wide. It was a little icy since it was February... 更多
The trip up Overlook is a steady, unrelenting climb. The path is wide and clear, so easy footing, but it is steadily uphill. Ignore the folks jogging up - they are regulars and in great shape - and just keep going. When you get almost to the top you can explore the remains/ruins of one of the hotels that once... 更多
This is a GOOD HIKE. I was definitely sore for 2 days after. You get to see some cool ruins and the fire tower at the top has incredible views. Where good shoes and watch the weather. Have fun!
This is not an easy hike. It is 2.5 miles straight up to the fire tower. We took a lot of breaks on the way up. The path is made of gravel rocks (where the horse carriages used back in the early nineties to go up to the hotel), and so not hard to hike on. Just going up the... 更多
I happened to find out about this trail accidently. I was looking up the best trails to do in the Catskills, and someone happened to have a link to their experience doing the Overlook mountain trail. Knowing the trail was rated difficult and myself and my fiance are not advanced hikers... we agreed to try it out. It said it... 更多
My husband, baby, dog, and I hiked to the Overlook summit (about 2.5 miles from the parking lot) and part of the way to Echo Lake (2 miles from main trail). There is only one trail for the first two miles, so there are a lot of people the whole way. It's a wide, gravel path with little tree cover.... 更多
This is a lovely little trail with an incredible pay off at the end with a gorgeous panorama view. If you're interested in making a day of this, I suggest walking up to the carpark from Woodstock town, going up to the mountain top and then down to echo lake before coming back up and back down into Woodstock (just... 更多
I've done this hike 5 times now and I would do it another 5 times! It's straight up. Not for the faint of heart. If you're out of shape plan on a 3-4 hour round trip hike. If you're in good shape it takes about 2-2.5 hours round trip. Take lots of breaks and for God's sake bring water! I... 更多
