Looking down the old Great White Way ski trail
Hogback used to be a medium sized downhill ski area during its prime. Various buildings and T-Bar lifts still exist throughout. While part of it is on state forest land, be careful as other parts are posted. Learning from my Vice President, I didn't walk onto the east face of the ski area, as I heard side arm fire at near point blank range.
There is a firetower at the summit which provides for excellent views on a clear day. There are also excellent views at the base of the ski area.
