Snowshoe at a slow to moderate pace to Southwest Hunter and Hunter Mountains. Excellent views from the Fire Tower, and Geiger Point. For those working on the Catskill All Trails Challenge, we’ll complete the Spruceton and Hunter Mountain trails, and will cover a part of the Devil’s Path. We’ll reach Southwest Hunter via a 3/4 mile unmarked trail off of the Devil’s Path. After the hike, a mile down the road on our way home, we can warm up by the fire at the West Kill Brewing tap room.
