Date and Time
Saturday, March 24, 2018, 9:00AM - 6:30PM
New York, Catskills,
Registration is not required for this activity. However, you may wish to contact the leader(s) if you have any questions.
Approximate 13 mile hike with a total elevation gain of approximately 3000'. Bring lunch, a trail snack and 2-3 liters of water.
During this hike we will ascend a geological anomaly caused by a meteor impact crater known as Panther Mountain. We will meet at the Woodland Valley Parking area (GPS 42.03610, -74.35884; going west the large parking area on the right hand side ) at 9:00 am. We will then car shuttle to the Fox Hollow parking area. From there, we will follow the blue trail up and over Panther Mountain. Once we are in the saddle on the south side of Panther mountain, we will leave the trail and bushwhack to the eastern shoulder of Panther mountain, where we will be able to see the Giant Ledge from a little known vantage point. Then we will hike back towards the blue trail turning south before we intersect it, thereby allowing us to bushwhack below the Giant Ledge. After passing below the Giant Ledge, we will intersect the blue trail again and descend via the blue and yellow trails to the Woodland Valley Parking area.
Depending on the group speed and interest, we may visit the Giant Ledge view points after intersecting the blue trail a second time.
No dogs. Optional dinner afterwards in Phoenicia.
Although the hike is posted as young members, feel free to join no matter your age.
