Overlook Mountain Fire Tower
The 60-foot fire tower on the summit of Overlook Mountain (3,140 feet above sea level) is located at the eastern edge of the Catskills and was active until 1988. There are fantastic views all around, including the rest of the Catskills to the west (the direction of this photo) and the Hudson River far below to the east. I enjoyed this snowy jaunt up Overlook Mountain to the fire tower a couple years ago, but it would be neat to see the same views when there is a bit less white and a lot more green.
