Overview

This is a 14 mile strenuous cold weather backpack for no more than 8 people. The terrain will be steep at times and due to the short days we will need to move at a 1.5 to 2.0 mph pace. Participants should have some backpacking experience and be prepared for cold weather conditions such as snow and below freezing temperatures. This route provides spectacular views of the Catskills and the Hudson Valley. If you are a member of Facebook, a great way to keep up to date on new trips is by joining our backpackers group.
