Ascent Trip ReportI stayed at North/South Lake Campground in Catskill, NY between 9/2-9/6 and I did multiple day hikes on 9/3-9/6 for 4 days.
Day-3 (9/5) was to hike at Hunter Mtn and Hunter Mtn SW peak including Fire Tower. We did loop hike and car spot was not required.
It took about 40min or so to drive to the trailhead of of Spruceton Trail TH on Spruceton Rd. from Campground.
