Fox Hollow parking lot sign

Fox Hollow parking lot sign

This is the sign to the Fox Hollow trailhead parking lot, off Fox Hollow Rd, south of Rt 28, between Allaben and Shandaken, so well described by Catskill Hiker.

The sign says it is 4.9 miles to the summit. It took me about 3.3 hours of hiking to reach the summit, putting my pace at about 1.5 mph. Not bad. My pack weighed about 20 pounds without water.

On the way back down my pace was faster, almost 2 mph. Without poles!
