October’s featured Catskill Social Series hike is West Kill Mountain. Please note that this has been rescheduled from a previously announced date of
October 6. The hike will be on October 13.
Westkill Mountain is the 6th highest peak in the Catskills and the highest point on the Devil’s Path trail (nearby Hunter Mountain is taller but the trail doesn’t pass over it’s summit). This trek is a great introduction to the Devil’s path on one of the gentler sections of the famous trail.
Join us on October 13 as we hike past waterfalls and great views to the evergreen clad summit.
This is a mostly moderate hike despite the lofty summit at less than an arms length shy of 3900 feet. There are one or two ledges that require minimal scrambling.
Contact Ed to reserve your spot on this challenging hike. Please share a sentence or two about your recent hiking experience.
