. Join Catskill Fire Tower Project Volunteer Jonathan Mogelever for a hike to the summit of Mount Tremper and the Mount Tremper Fire Tower. 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.
We will leave from the trail head on Plank Road (just east of Phoenicia) and have lunch at the fire tower.
