Hike or drive the one mile gravel road to 360 degree views overlooking Stamford, New York!

Whether you hike or drive up the one mile road you will not be disappointed. This is an amazing spot whether you climb the tower or not to watch a sunset. Located in the village of Stamford, Mount Utsayantha is 3214 feet. There are picnic tables and BBQ grills available. There is even primitive camping allowed.

There are beautiful views from the tower of the surrounding mountains, hills and valleys. There is also a great spot in front of the Churchill Education Building with a bench to watch the sunset.

Note: The road is not plowed in winter therefore, would have to be a snowshoe hike during this time.
