An Off Trail Exploration of Panther Mountain | Saturday, October 8, 8 AM **2016**

Join the Catskill’s homegrown Team Danger Girl for an off trail exploration of Panther Mountain. We will lead an intrepid crew of up to 8 hikers along the Cascade Brook valley to the western headwall of Panther Mountain. One of the trip leaders is a stream geologist so be prepared for many science-geeky moments! From there we will ascend to the summit through a birch forest-talus block community to the summit balsam forest and return to County Route 47 via the Giant Ledge trail. This is a 6-7 mile hike and should be considered strenuous and requiring experience with Catskill forest and stream bushwacking.
