Overview

This is a short, 2-night backpack to a basecamp. Friday afternoon, we'll backpack 2 miles to set up a basecamp in the Devil's Kitchen area of the Indian Head Wilderness in the NE Catskills. On Saturday, we'll day hike up 3,573-foot Indian Head Mtn. (@5 mi. RT) and possibly 3,640-foot Twin Mtn. (8.5 mi. RT for both), depending on trail conditions. On Sunday, day hike to Codfish Point (@1.5 mi. RT) for the fabulous view. Upon returning, break camp and backpack the 2 mi. to our starting point. This trip is suitable for those with 3-season backpacking experience AND Winter day hiking experience who want to try Winter backpacking. You know, deep down, you want to do this!
