Montgomery Hollow Mountain is a 3040′ and Catskill 67 peak located near the Town of Roxbury. It derives its name from the hollow that is located to the north; Montgomery Hollow. The peak is also known as Walt’s Knob. One could do a twofer combining it with its taller neighbors White Man Mountain or its parent Roundtop. In any case, you’ll need the landowner’s permission to enter the property. If you have time you can take a visit to the Burroughs Memorial his final resting place which was near his childhood home and farm; Woodchuck Lodge which is minutes away across the valley.
