Catskill 3500: Windham High Peak
On this trip we’ll hike on the same ground the Mohican Native American tribe traveled while moving from their winter homes along the Hudson River to their summer hunting grounds high in the mountains. We’ll pass by stone walls made by early Dutch settlers and through what some of our guides call the ‘spooky’ forest, a rare patch of old-growth conifer forest. Windham High Peak is one of the few Catskill tall peaks with two summit markers. See if you are able to find both of them as you enjoy beautiful views from the top!
This is a required peak for Catskill 3500 Club Membership and #33 Catskill High Peak (elevation 3,525′).
