Day Escapes

When you only have a day, join us for a weekend’s worth of scenery in a day hike!  

Join us on an invigorating Day Escape to explore the wild & rugged Catskill Mountains in their Winter finest with the guides who know them the best--Experience the spectacular beauty of the Wilderness in Winter!  We’ve added new trips, including a few designed specifically for first time winter adventurers.  We’ll also be climbing new summits in the Catskills and exploring new routes up old favorites.  If conditions permit (we expect they will!) we’ll be on snowshoes.  Incredibly simple to learn, it’s actually easier to handle Catskill trails when the roots & rocks are buried under 2 feet of snow!   

We’ll pick you up in Brooklyn or Manhattan (your choice) in our van, loaded with coffee, tea, donuts & fruit to fuel your adventure.  Your team of licensed, experienced Guides & Assistants will prepare you with tips and techniques to stay warm and comfortable.   On our adventure, we’ll  interpret natural history, ecology and geology of the region, expertly leading our hike so that everyone stays warm while moving at a comfortable pace.  

After reaching the summit, we’ll bask in an incredible feeling of accomplishment & enjoy a well earned, steaming hot gourmet lunch with our famous Mountain Mocha to fuel our descent before heading back to the van and home to our warm showers & beds!  

We adventure only in Wilderness Areas & Wild Forests, for a truly wild and pristine experience. Our guides have extensive experience in and an intimate knowledge of these incredible Catskill Mountains which allows us to share famous favorites and hidden gems!  We’ve designed adventures for all abilities and ambitions, though most are perfect for first time winter hikers.  We’d love to teach you how the pros stay warm and comfortable as you explore the beauty of a Winter landscape.
