Hiking up the old road. Elevation at trail head was about 1220 feet.
The climb up West Mountain is steady but not difficult. Here are some more screened views west towards New York. Did see a lot of coyote tracks on West Mtn.
Just a few yards east of the summit is a man made clearing with a great view east towards OnotaLake and Pittsfield. I had no idea this view was here and will have to come back with my good camera for better photos.
Very disappointed that I didn't have use of my good camera for this trip. A little over 5 miles RT with about 1200 feet elevation gain.
