Ascent Trip Report

Started out from Notch Lake on a clear and beautiful day. Begining part of the hike was very strenuous. Needed help from Chris a few times. Made it up to the Hunter Mt. lean-to in very fast time. We side tracked off to do S.W. Hunter. Continued on to Hunter Mt. Stopped at the overlook to the beautiful SW views on top of Hunter. Finished up at the Firetower where I was ginen the finest view you could ask for of the Catskill Park. 360 degree view. The tower had a map that you spin a dial around and it would line up with the mt. it was pointing at. Finest view so far. Went back the way we came. Spent the weekend camping with my son at Woodland Valley Campground. Great weekend.
