If you haven’t Hiked Them All yet, you may want to consider joining the Catskill Mountain Club for a Catskills All Trails (CATs) Series hike.These hikes are designed to help interested hikers complete the Catskills All Trails Challenge. They may go to familiar destinations, but they’ll follow lesser-used alternate trail routes to get there. Many of these group hikes include strategic car spotting to allow for straight-through routes in favor of out-and-back routes. You get to travel across more unique trail segments and avoid doubling your efforts as you pursue the challenge. And, as you get deeper into the challenge, let the Catskill Mountain Club guide you to lesser traveled sections of the Catskill Park.
You don’t need to be pursuing the Catskills All Trails Challenge to participate in these hikes. However, you may find as you join us for some group hikes, that you’re actually further along to the goal of having Hiked Them All than you might otherwise have thought.

Another way to meet the Catskills All Trails Challenge
Consider joining a Trail Maintenance Hike where you can help keep our Catskills Trails in great shape while hiking the many trails that the Catskill Mountain Club, its members, and partner groups maintain. Many of these trails are in beautiful areas of the Catskill Park and go near or over Catskill peaks. You can enjoy a great hike while offering much-needed volunteer efforts.
Trail Maintenance: it’s a group hike with tools!
