A 1.5 mile route easy terrain. The trail to this popular destination is well worn and occasionally steep. An open grassy area and ledges provide spectacular views across Piseco Lake to Spy Lake and the Silver Lake Wilderness.
From NY 8 at the south end of Piseco Lake, go north on West Shore Rd for 2.6 miles. You will see a DEC sign for Panther Mountain on the left. There is parking on the side of the road.
