A small hill in central new york with a veiw, this hill actually part of pigeon hill has been scared by glaciers.
The park itself c henango valley state park has about 15 miles of trails, two glacier lakes, 30 cabins, a golf cource and 200 campsites or so. A hike alone the Sylvain trail reveals many more glacier bowls that could have been ponds but never got a spring to feed them after a bunch of trail splits you find your way onto the power line trail that climbers to the top of the Ridge line, and the viewpoint overlooking the chenago river and chenago forks.

From the top of the mountain theirs a trail that comes in from the valley, the riverside mountain trail, which steeply climbs 200 feet or so to the top, or the ridge trail that slowly drops to the valley floor, and the golf cource

Any time of the year this is a fun little peak to walk, and a even more interesting park to visit

Getting There

Off of I88 in port crane follow 360 north to park road, once inside the park theirs many options that stem from chenago lake to hike this peak ( would be a shame to miss the lake on a hike)


Sylvain trail to rockey road to power line trail, or tow path to riverside mountain trial to Ridgeline trail are just 2 ways, any route is 1.5-3 miles one way

Red Tape

All state park regulations in place on hunting and leash law for dogs, 7$ fee for park interest unless you walk in on marksman trail or river road to towpath

When to Climb

5-20 to10-30 is roughly the park camp season, season is any time for hiking or winter skiing
