Wild Westkill (10/13-14)

Sale price Price $ 199.00 Regular price

Westkill Mountain remained trail-less until the 1970s, and for some time after remained neglected compared to nearby Hunter. While that has changed in more recent times, every now and then we like to experience Westkill as she was when we first visited. For that, we take an old forest road off the beaten path to explore Westkill and her satellite peak St Anne’s, both rich with incredible scenery, some of the best foliage in the Catskills, and rich Native American and early European history.
