Red Hill, Denning New York

Red Hill, Denning New York

Red Hill has one of the five fire towers that stand in the Catskills. We begin the hike by crossing a stream, after that, the trail ascends gradually and wraps around the mountain. After about a mile, we will reach a spring. From there the trail gets steeper through some switchbacks to the ranger station and the fire tower. The fire tower is 60 feet in height and built in the 1920’s. It stayed in service until 1990 and was the last active fire tower in the Catskills. From the fire tower, you can see the Catskill high peaks to the north and west, Rondout Reservoir to the southeast. The hike is just shy of three miles round-trip and has an elevation gain of around 900 feet.
