Bearpen and Vly Mountains – Social Series

June 8, 2023 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Our June social series hike will be to Bearpen and Vly Mountains. Considered trail-less summits, these will feel very much like trailed hikes. After an interesting hike to the summit canister on Vly Mountain, we’ll proceed to Bearpen Mountain where we’ll enjoy some unique views of the Schoharie Valley, as well as remains from an abandoned ski area near the summit. The hike is a workout at 6.5 miles and nearly 2100 feet of elevation gain, but much of the climbing is relatively gentle compared to most Catskill high peaks.

This hike is being presented in conjunction with the Catskill 3500 Club and the Adirondack Mountain Club. We strongly encourage you to join one or both of these clubs.

Contact Ed to reserve your spot on this fun, but challenging hike. Please share a sentence or two about your recent hiking experience.
