NOTE: On this trip, you will be able to go at your own pace, if you prefer.

This is going to be an epic day. Almost 15 miles over the steep, rocky terrain of the Catskill Mountains. If you are looking for a challenging day or are training for big hikes, this one is for you. And if you are planning to do the Full Devil’s Path in the summer with us, this is a great hike to gauge where you are.  Steep slopes, scrambles, and a whole lot of fun! Join us for a challenging day out in the wild!
