Mt. Beacon Fire ~Tower Hike ~ SUNSET

I will be training for the Catskill 17 peak hike.

TRAIL RUNNING to the tower as fast as possible!!!

We will regroup at the tower WATCH THE SUN SET and return and a moderate pace.

Sun sets at 8:15 pm













4 miles  

Trail info- We will be taking the steps from the Gateway park to the Red trail. The trail is 6 or 7 switchbacks up to the old casino with a very rewarding look out point where you can see sweeping views of the Hudson river and surrounding area.

Distance: 4 miles round trip

The First 0.8 miles of this hike is hard, and very steep with 1000ft. elevation gain.
Mount Beacon is the second highest point in the Hudson Highlands. Depending on the map, it may be called Mount Beacon or Beacon Mountain. The mountain consists of two peaks. The northern peak is 1531ft and has a series of radio antennas on its summit. The higher southern peak is 1610ft and has a lookout tower on its summit.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
