Twin and Indian Head | Saturday, September 17, 2022, 8:30 AM

This is a 7-mile hike up to Twin (3,650 ft.) and Indian Head (3,573 ft.). We’re going to do a T. We’ll take the Devil’s Path trail (red) for 0.25 miles to the junction of Jimmy Notch Trail for 1.6 miles to the notch; then we’ll turn right to head over to Twin where we’ll see very nice views from the east peak. The view from this rock ledge is one of the better views and hard to match anywhere in the Catskills. We’ll continue for 0.7 miles to the west peak of Twin. From there, we’ll retrace our steps to Jimmy Notch and continue straight for 0.4 miles to the summit of Indian Head as we retrace our steps and return to our cars at the trailhead on Prediger Road. This hike is challenging hiking parts of the Devil’s Path with some scrambles.
