Let’s explore a new area of the Catskill Mountains together! There are so many peaks in this beautiful region outside of the 3500 peaks. Today, we are going to hike over to the interestingly-named Touchmenot Mountain and Cabot Mountain. These mountains are part of the Pepaction Range. On the way between the peaks, we’ll also circle around a charming little pond at the foot of the mountains. Join us for a brand-new Catskills adventure!
