Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2015


Nice quick easy hike up on a beautiful day. Not too terribly steep, and some good views from the top of the fire tower!

ron6788Good workout!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2014


Climbed Becker up & down four times in a row last summer. Probably could've done five but didn't want to stress.
Couldn't get even one of the so-called 'extreme hikers' meetup group to come.

Date Climbed: Nov 21, 2013


20F at the start! Warming to about 35F on the summits. Sun was shining most of the day until the clouds rolled in for the last 2 hours. Rusk Mountain was the highlight of the trip: loved it! Took about 7 hours total for all 3 peaks, round trip.

Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2012


Eighty minutes to the top and sixty back down, on a windy and rainy day via the Becker Hollow Trail. I didn't climb to the top of the fire tower: the wind made it sway alarmingly. At the bottom it began to pour, so I escaped to town, ate lunch, and then climbed Plateau Mountain next.

Hiked up via Becker Hollow, then camped at Devil's Acre lean-to. Short first day to a Devil's Path "flip-flop".

BConleybecker hollow trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2012


When I read this was one of the toughest trails in the catskills I was skeptical with it only being a little over 2 miles. Im now a believer though, trail is relentlessly steep and only gets steeper as you go. Good hike, great snow conditions. Well over a foot of snow on the summit. Feel bad for the group of guys we passed trying this without crampons.

Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2011


My dog and I made it half way to the summit on Devils Path before a big thunder storm decided to roll in! Not a nice way to decend a rugged rocky trail with a dog in tow! I took a nasty spill on some rocks and my dog and I looked like drowned rats by the time we got back to the truck. We will deffinately have to try again soon for the summit:)

PaulRomanoRace to summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2011


While driving from the capital district to NYC, I decided to make a quick climb of Hunter Mountain. I took the Becker Hollow trail and was able to make the summit in an hour and then back down in 40 minutes. Alternating drizzle and rain the whole time and the summit was completely clouded in.

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2010


Went up Becker Hollow - good and steep if you want a nice workout - and ate lunch at the top. Nice views from the fire tower. Headed down to Devils Path and over to Southwest Hunter before heading out Devils Path. 102 of 115.

tiogaTough start  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 14, 2010


Climbed on Valentine's Day with my wife. Started at Notch Lake and climbed Devil's Path. Tough start with all the steep ice in the beginning but it leveled out. Came down Becker Hollow Trail and enjoyed some sparkling wine on the way down.

Fast, steep climb. High wind 3500' and above. Too scared to climb fire tower more than a couple landings. It sways in the wind.

ajdenaliGreat day...hiked July of 2007


Great hike. Nice sunny day. First climb since tearing MCL in left knee in March of 07 and quitting smoking (after 15 years!) 2 weeks before. Met a ranger in the fire tower and he was awesome.

Climbed via Becker Hollow Trail from Route 214. A short but steep ascent. There was a fresh coating of snow on the ground over 3500' all the way to the summit. Climbed the fire tower in 40 mile-an-hour winds and in a complete whiteout. No views today.

TLPTree Blowdown War  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 22, 2007


I took the Becker Hollow trail. There was a sign at the trailhead saying the trail was closed due to heavy blowdowns. I drove all the way from NJ, so I was going no matter what. Well the top of the mountain is just devastated by tree blowdowns. All right in the middle of the trail! You have to take the yellow trail to the fire tower, and then the blue trail to get to the summit. No way you can get to the summit if you go left at the trail junction and take the blue trail. No way! It's going to take an army to clear the trail. I fought my way through. Ripped my shirt all up. You got to be hardcore and determined if you want the summit.
