With the actual summit in the distance.

There is a legend of a spectral army that was seen marching along the summit ridge. In happened on midsummer eve 1735 when a farm labourer at Blake Hills Farm (NY3628) saw troop movements near the summit lasting an hour.

Two years later, also on Midsummer's eve, the farmer himself saw some soldiers mounted on horses. All the farmer's family saw the army.

Again on Midsummer's eve 1745 26 persons saw the apparition including now carriages and testified as such to the local magistrate.
