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. Taking this route, we’ll see panoramic views of the Hudson Valley on one side and the Blackhead Range on the other. 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′).

  • Microspikes or snowshoes, as needed, for participants’ use
