Limekiln mountain is a great, short climb. Its basically climbing up the mountain to a great view and then coming back down in under an hour. The challenge is that the trail up is unofficial and not blazed. I parked at the Tuxedo-Mt Ivy Trailhead, and walked along the power lines on the trail. Upon entering the woods, I took the Limekiln Mountain Trail up to the top of the mountain to the expansive view. I then turned around around and take to the same route back, with a slight detour on the path on the western side of the power lines.
