|Date of Hike:
||Saturday, July 15, 2017|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:

||Dry Trail |
|Water Crossing Notes:
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||The South Taconic Trail seems to get little use but there are plenty of Trail markers on the NY side, which comprised about 70% of my route, from Catamount's Base Lodge to the parking lot in Taconic State Park and back. |
|Lost and Found:
||Mt. Fray - Catamount Ski Area summit; Prospect Hill|
The excellent views described in the AMC Guide (2016) were merely good, as they have grown in considerably from when the description was written. The same thing happened on a hike last summer in the No. Berkshires. Caveat lector.
