The view is widely considered to be the finest in the Catskills. The hike is 7.8 miles and will take about 8 hours. Wear good boots and bring plenty of water. We’ll eat at the summit. Strenuous. Well behaved dogs welcome. Rain cancels. Register by Friday, September 6 by contacting CMC board member Wendell George at email@example.com or 845-254-4546.

Directions: From SR 28 in Phoenicia, turn south onto Woodland Valley Rd. Go about 5 miles to the P.A. on the right. At this time of year the DEC collects a fee for parking, so get there a few minutes early and go to the office up the road and on the left.
