This hike is to be a full traverse of Panther and the scenic Giant Ledges. One of the best hikes in the Catskills, it offers a full range of treats for an experienced hiker. A lovely combination of ups, downs and wonderful scrambles offering a variety of woods and some fabulous views. This is one of my favorite late Summer hikes and I love company, so come join me for a fun day!
Note hike is for experienced hikers. No pets. Bring plenty of water and lunch. Dress in wicking layers for comfort. We will go at a fair pace but plan to treat ourselves to time to admire nature’s beauty. This traverse is by far the prettiest way to enjoy this unique 3500 peak. Hike requires a shuttle from hairpin turn on Route 47/Frost Valley-Oliverea Rd. We will have a full day!
