Report

My wife and I decided to get out of the city for the day on our anniversary trip to New York. We originally wanted to do a longer hike, but we got a later start than anticipated, and we had tickets to Hamilton that night, and wanted to make sure we got back in time.

This was a more scenic hike than I expected. The Appalachian Trail is rocky and stays on top of the ridge line with nice views of the surrounding area, including a glacial lake. There is not much of a view from the top of the tower, but there are great views from its base and the open area around it.
