Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up from parking area on Route 42. Beautiful day, but lots of flies and nettles. Found the Catskill 3500 Club canister without too much difficulty, then walked south from the canister and found a viewpoint looking over Rose Mountain towards Slide Mountain. Belleayre was visible to the west. Hiked back down along a different route and came across a waterfall along the Bushnellsville Creek.
