Starting on a gravel trail, you will come to the ruins of the Mount Beacon Incline Railway, which used to be the steepest railway in the world. It carried guests to and from the casino and hotel, which stood, near the overlook. You will then climb several stairs and proceed to the top of the former railway, where ruins stand today, having climbed 1,094 feet of elevation in 1.2 miles. From this overlook, you will hike another mile up a rocky trail to the fire tower, at an elevation of 1,653 feet. From the fire tower, you can see the Catskills, the Beacon Reservoir, the Gunks, and on a clear day, you might see New York City.
