Friday & Balsam Cap (6/23)
Take a moment to imagine before you a gorgeous forest spotted with enormous boulders, fields of ferns underfoot, and the biggest, ancient trees you’ve ever seen all around as you make your way up the mountain. Our route up these two trailless peaks rises a quick 2500' in less than 2 miles through gorgeous forest overlooking rocky ledges and cliffs. For a deep wilderness Catskills hiking experience, this scramble could not be more perfect. The views of the Ashokan Reservoir and Esopus Valley are jaw-dropping.
Great for: bushwhacking, badassery, and scrambles
