Short hike through Norvin Green State Park. Parked at the Crescent Drive trailhead and took the Hewitt Butler Trail to the Long Hill summit. Formed a loop using the Overlook and Manaticut Point trails. About 7 miles round-trip. Several sections of the trail were very flooded after the rain we've been having.
Ugh, one of those peaks you'd only do if it's on a list of some sort. There was at least a nice view part-way up, but mostly just a grinder of a climb that fortunately wasn't super long.

Beautiful hike today on all trails, which was nice. Went with the dog, who loved it as much as I did. Saw a black bear near the TH on the way back, and got some gorgeous long-range views of NYC near the summit.
The easy way to find the summit area is to take the AT off a woods road from from the Crater Lake parking lot. When the AT makes a sharp left you make a right and within 20 steps can see the fire tower. Bushwhack that way and check your coordinates for the summit. The road to Crater Lake should be called crater road. Beware the potholes.
