There is a New York State fire tower on the bare summit of this peak that offers outstanding views. Unfortunately, as of 2011, access to the trailhead is on strictly controlled private property due to a dispute between the landowner and the state. Permission must be obtained in order to cross the landowner's property, and he does not live locally.
