Kaaterskill High Peak (5/21)

This underrated 3500' peak has so much to offer. Technically trail-less, our guides will take you up herd paths and old trails for a moderate hike through a forest blanketed with spring wildflowers (before the stinging nettles take over in the summer). An excellent first bushwhack (off-trail hike), we're happy to offer map and compass navigation instruction for hikers looking to improve their outdoors skills. Our route takes us up and over Round Top—a nearby prominence with an enchanting summit—and past the site of one of two old plane crashes on Kaaterskill High Peak, a must-see for Catskill enthusiasts. Plus, the summit offer incredible views of both the Hudson Valley and the Catskill interior wilderness. If you're looking to venture off trail and explore a gorgeous forest, this hike is for you. 

Cardio Intensity: Challenging.
Terrain: About half our mileage is off-trail. A few steep sections require using hands for balance.
