Fun short scramble to a cool view of the Catskills.
This is a nice, fun little scramble with awesome views of the Catskills. It can easily be fit into an afternoon, if you're willing to deal with all of the dipshits on the trail.
Nice short/easy scramble (took the "Bonticou Ascent" trail! Lot's of people there, though, on a really beautiful fall day.
Have done Bonticou a couple of times, favorite scramble at the Gunks. Stellar views of the Catskills - Burroughs Range, Devil's Path, Escarpment - to the north, Hudson Highlands to the SE.
Took the class three hikers path. The views from the top were great! could see the Catskills excellently and the Hudson Highlands. The climbing routes look short, single pitch only.
