Head north from Margaretville on Route 30 in Kelly Corners turn right on County Route 36. After about 3 miles, watch for Dimmick Mountain road on your right. Turn here and drive 1.4 miles and turn left on Red Kill Road. As you drive north on Red Kill Road watch for DEP signs on the left around 2.0 miles. Pull off the road on the shoulder. Cross the road and hike UP into the fields. As you hike through the fields turn around and take in the view since there are none from the summit. Head northwest and Up until there is no higher ground. There are some areas of prickers on the way up and at the summit. Some rock ledges are present but are easy to handle. You may run into some old woods roads which make the hike easier. Once on the summit wander around to make sure you have hit the highest point. Follow your route back to the car or find another one.
