Destination Backcountry Adventures

Old Growth Forest Backpack (10/1-2)

$ 299.00

We’ll hike through brilliant scarlet maples into the old growth forest of the Neversink Valley, where we’ll explore among bright yellow birch and camp under towering trees , some of which are 400-500 years old!

After enjoying a comfortable night at one of our favorite backcountry camps (big fire &  great food!) we’ll head into the heart of the Slide Mountain Wilderness, an old-growth, primeval forest and one of the most stunning landscapes in the Catskills.  

We’ll emerge from the forest and onto the trail to climb Slide Mountain from the scenic side and enjoy sweeping views over a multi-colored forest from atop the Catskills highest peak before descending gently back down into the Neversink Valley
