Overlook Mountain Wild Forest is a 590 acre area within the Catskill Forest Preserve. A two mile long route climbs to the top of the mountain where there is a fire tower and a restored firewatcher’s cabin. Migrating and nesting warblers and other montane species can be seen and heard along the red-blazed route. On weekends in good weather, the top of the fire tower is open and there are exhibits in the firewatcher’s cabin.
Directions: From SR 212 in the center of Woodstock, take Rock City Rd then Meads Mountain Rd north for two miles to the trailhead parking at the crest of the hill.
