Eastern Devil’s Path: Winter Edition
Looking for a winter challenge? Hike the eastern half of the infamous Devil’s Path! Known as one of the most challenging hiking trails in the Northeast, the Devil’s Path has steep, rugged ascents and equally difficult descents, slowing down the pace of even the most experienced hikers. Conquering the eastern half will require you to scramble up rocky trails covered with snow and ice and navigate steep descents. We’ll have crampons, microspikes, or snowshoes, as needed, to set you up for success! You will have access to a resupply and bail-out point, and our guides will be on trail to help throughout the day.
You also have a chance to try the Western Devil’s Path this winter, and if you are feeling up for a really intense day, join us to hike the full Devil’s Path in a day in the summer of 2021.
On this trip we will summit Indian Head, Twin, Sugarloaf and Plateau mountains. These are required peaks for Catskill 3500 Club Membership.

While COVID-19 remains a concern, we are limiting our van capacity to a 10-person maximum, including guides, and leaving the middle row empty for all trips. The limited-capacity trips have a $20 fee to accommodate the changes we need to make for the COVID protocol. The fees will only be in effect for limited-capacity trips.
