Walnut Mountain ~ Liberty NY

Monday's Hike Started here.

Hey! I can see my house from up here! ( Not really.)

The climb up Walnut Mountain is easy. I would have to say ridiculously easy. It requires no huffing and puffing, and no scrambling over boulders--just nice well-maintained paths and a gentle grade. Since the mountain is shaped like a walnut, you can wander around on top for quite awhile.

Hey! I can see Swan Lake from here!

Long ago there was a lookout tower up here someplace. I found some old ruins and foundations ~ not much left of them, you really had to look to find them. They were behind these boulders.

There were many trails, well marked.
