Why choose a trail at Paint Mountain?

Point Mountain Mausoleum (now abandoned) sits at the top of Point Mountain in Hancock, NY (overlooking the Delaware River and neighboring Pennsylvania). It was built as the memorial and final resting spot for Dr. Lester E. Woolsey (1872-1962) in the 1940s to house his remains. The mausoleum lies empty today. Dr. Woolsey was the longtime Delaware County coroner who had practiced medicine in Hancock since 1901. Dr. Woolsey was buried there only a few years, until the structure could not be properly protected and all the bodies that were entombed there were removed. Dr. Woolsey's remains were removed to Old Colonial Mausoleum, Union Dale, Pa.

The Paint Mountain is located in the Yukon Territory of Canada. It is a small mountain, only reaching an elevation of 2,392 feet (719 meters). Despite its small stature, the mountain is a popular destination for climbers and hikers. The mountain is known for its colorful rock formations, which are caused by the presence of various minerals in the area. The most common colors are red, orange, and yellow, but there are also shades of green and blue. The Paint Mountain is a beautiful sight to behold, and it is well worth the effort to climb to the summit.
