Plateau Mountain

Plateau Mountain from the South

USGS Map:  Hunter

NY-NJ Trail Conference Map:  #41/141

Order of Height: 12th at 3840'

Access:  Via Devil's Path

Description:  Plateau Mountain is the eastern mountain rising up from Stony Clove or Devil's Tombstone.  The summit is at the eastern edge of the two-mile-long plateau.  There is a view at the western edge of the plateau from a ledge that overlooks Stony Clove and Hunter Mountain, and another viewpoint to the east, just above Mink Hollow.  

The shortest access is from the east via Mink Hollow and the Devil's Path.  However, the best view is at the western end of the summit ridge.  Access from the west is from Devil's Tombstone via the Devil's Path. There is a recent addition to the approaches to Plateau from Warner Creek.
