Mt. Overlook
Catskill Mountains

By no means, "hidden"; Mt. Overlook is about two and half hours from New York. The trail follows an old wagon road; at the summit are ruins of the Overlook Mountain House.

These photos are all from my first trip. Due to a late start and my plodding technique I was only able to get to the quarry, but I did get lucky with about 5 inches of fresh power.
