Overlook mountain has been flown intermittently since the early 1970s. Currently this is a hike in site. The trail is 2.25 miles and a 1400 feet climb.
Pilots used to drive up to launch, but since the DEC has purchased the land it has reverted to a wilderness area and access is now only by foot. It now will go several years between visits from pilots.
The summit is the southern end of a 30 mile long north south ridge, with a large bowl facing south. Excellent thermal lift can be found here.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation owns the summit and the trail to it. Hang gliding is permitted.
