"Nice short hike up Hale Brook trail. Trail was muddy and leave cover down low. Icy spots and frozen mud near summit. Frost covered trees nest top and snow falling most of way." - Mount Hale, blackwolf_03278, Oct 21, 2018
"Finally the last task at hand.The Beast of the bunch, Hunter Mountain, Not concidered the longest but the steepest! @ 4040 ft of elevation making it compared to an Adarondaks climb.Trail was a gradual climb with water falls and mountain beauty along the trail before your never ending steep ascent,, Again Careful on those rocks,, ended up on my butt a couple times here — at Catskill Mountains." - Hunter Mountain, ramjet1963, Oct 20, 2018
"Hiked all 5 Catskill Towers in 2 days to complete the Fire Tower Challenge. This was the toughest, steep trail to the top, with conditions typical of a peak over 4,000ft, cold wet and even a bit of snow. This was our 5th and final in our trip. The Catskill Fire Towers are complete, as now is the ADK/Catskill Fire Tower Challenge. " - Hunter Mountain, UK-Ranger, Oct 20, 2018
"3 miles of steep uphill terrain with the Viking, with some ice and snow for color (although not enough for microspikes). 40+ mph winds and 17 degrees at the summit. Gorgeous views the whole way." - Giant Mountain, WhenKatsFly, Oct 20, 2018
"Went on a big ole loop hike starting at the western end of the Devil's Path, going over St Anne's, West Kill, SW Hunter and then finally Hunter. There was a dusting of snow on my climb up St. Anne's and over to West Kill but it melted not to long after that. Diamond Notch Falls was roaring and the clouds and lighting from Hunter was superb. Quite a few people out on the trails for a mid-october Friday, but it was quite the beautiful day. Finished the trip off with a three mile road walk and a stop in at the West Kill Brewery." - Hunter Mountain, Right-On, Oct 19, 2018
