Mt. Tremper Fire Tower Hike via the Willow Trail
October 8 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join Catskill Center staff member Jonathan Mogelever for a unique hike to the summit of Mount Tremper and the Mount Tremper Fire Tower. We will start from the brand new parking area at the Willow trailhead. We will unlock the cab on top of the fire tower so hike participants can enjoy the view from inside — including views of the tallest mountains in the Catskills, the Shawangunks and the Hudson Highlands.
