Peekamoose & Table (10/1)
We love everything about this favorite autumn day hike, from the gentle rolling start alongside the majestic Neversink River, to the extended hiking in the magical spruce-fir summit forest, to the incredible multi-colored fall foliage from valley to summit filled with yellow birches and majestic red maples.
Although long, the steep sections of the hike do not have any of the rocky scrambles common to Catskill hiking, making this trek easier on the knees and ideal for adventurers looking to take a step forward from moderate hikes. The two peaks include extended time in an old growth forest where your guides can point out trees that are hundreds of years old.
Cardio Intensity: Challenging.
Terrain: On trail, steep sections, some areas of loose footing.
