    This is an easy, 1.4 mile hike that ends at the Red Hill Fire Tower. When the tower is open there are excellent views. There are no views from the summit except from the tower. Since this is part of the Catskill fire tower challenge, the small parking lot can fill up requiring you to park alongside a one lane dirt road. The hike goes through a classic example of a northern hardwood beech-yellow birch-maple forest.
