Found on Munsee Lenape, Mohican & Wappinger Land, South Beacon Summit is the most popular route to ascend Mt. Beacon, but don't let that fool you. This is not a quick and easy up and down. The 360° views at the top however, make you forget about any struggle you may have had during the initial ascent!
