Woodhull Mountain Trail and Fire Tower

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28, near McKeever in Herkimer County

Woodhull Mountain is a small mountain six miles south of Old Forge, near McKeever.

From the State Land parking lot in McKeever (between Otter lake and Minnehaha, on Route 28), travel on foot (or mountain bike or cross country skis) about five miles on a relatively flat dirt road. Proceed past the turnoff to Remsen Falls to a clearing with a bridge. Cross the bridge, stow the bikes or skis and continue on the trail about 2.5 mi to the summit. The trail is never steep but climbs slowly to a fire tower on top with excellent views all around.
