Kaaterskill High Peak Hike

September 29 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

  We’ll hike to the summit of Kaaterskill High Peak. Our route will include marked trails, unmarked trails, bushwhacking and interesting scrambles. We’ll have lunch at Hurricane Ledge, with one of the best views in the Catskills; and we’ll visit the sites of 2 plane crashes. Our pace will be moderate with frequent, short snack/water breaks. This hike is listed as difficult because of the scrambles, and the bushwhack.
