Mountain
“Little further to get to but worth it - easy hike to Diamond Notch falls with a great waterfall / swimming hole, then around the back side of Hunter. Or start a little earlier on Spruceton to hike up Hunter / firetower, and all the way across to Devil's Tombstone”

“One of the best starting points for multiple longer trails - south to Indian Head or Overlook Mountain, North to Huckleberry Point, or just do a short walk around Plattekill Creek itself”
