Catskills are made for hiking and offer very many great trails everywhere. This one will lead you to the highest peak in the Catskills, with several outstanding viewpoints. It is a loop trail 6.3 mile. Recommended.

It was not for the faint of heart. Some folks seemed to have no trouble at all. But it was a bit much for us. Maybe we will try something a little easier next time.

I hiked to the peak of Slide Mountain (the views were great but not as breathtaking as I had expected), then doubled back and looped around via the blue/red trail, back to the yellow Phoenicia East trail. A great hike I'd do again. I'm slow...More
