“A great grind rewarded with views of the Catskills.”— Joshua Howard
After climbing up the Mine Hollow Trail, you'll turn right onto the blue blazed Pine Hill - West Branch Trail where you'll rock hop and have a small scramble as you finish your grind up to 3600' where you'll reach a great viewpoint.
Once up top, you'll follow the Pine Hill - West Branch Trail down to an intersection with the Oliverea - Mapledale Trail. The 1.45 mile descent is quick and and straight down, until you reach the valley floor and the Rider Hollow shelter. Retrace your steps back to the trailhead for the final .3 miles.
