A lot of history at this location!
Old tram railway to an old restuarant, hotel, and casino overlooking the Hudson River. 1900-1940's.
Most "trails" are actually streambeds!
Building remnants of the tramway upper machinery building.
Tramway gearing motors to pull up the tram railcars.
Foundation remnants of old hotel and casino circa 1910's. Great view of the Hudson River to the west.
Beacon Firetower in the distance! Great takeoff angles!
Last rocky trail secton up to the firetower. Notice no roof on the cab of the firetower! Perfect for antennas!
Abandoned firetower. Built circa 1930's. Undergoing renovation. Best part...no roof!
70 ft up with a steel grate for a floor, I setup "shop" for /p activities! Yes, your butt gets real sore in a surprisingly short time!
Close up of the dipole at 70 feet!
Makes for a nice antenna support structure! Dipoles work great at 70 ft!
This was the old hotel circa 1910-1920. Nice Antenna system.
