Hunter Mountain, Hunter New York

Hunter Mountain, Hunter New York

Following the Spruceton Trail, the hike begins along Hunter Brook. We will cross a small bridge and start the ascent. At 1.5 miles, the trail turns and begins to gain elevation quickly. At 2.2 miles, we will reach a lean-to in a flat open area with views of Rusk, Evergreen, Sherrill, North Dome, and West Kill. The trail will ascend into an evergreen forest and at about 3 miles; we will reach an open rock path and climb the final distance to the summit, having hiked 3.2 miles with an elevation gain of 1950 ft. At the summit, there is an observer's cabin and a 60-foot fire tower built in 1917. The summit of Hunter, at 4,040 feet is the second highest in the Catskills. Leaving the summit, we will follow the Hunter Loop trail to a spot with great views to the south. Then we continue to descend through forests that change from conifer to hardwood. The loop trail hike is a little over eight miles with great views!
