NEAREST TOWN: Big Indian, NY

 

WHY GO 
Great camping spots are bit of a climb but worth it. Great rock ledges both sides of the ridge lets you take your pick of viewing the sunset or moon rise - or both if you are there on the right date. Beyond camp is a picturesque hike along the ridge to Panther Mountain. In August there was dozens of fungi all different colors, shapes and sizes.

 

ACTIVITIES
Backpacking, Camping

  

GETTING THERE  (Catskill Trails Map Set - map #142)
Drive along Oliverea Road until the parking area located at the hairpin turn at the base of Big Indian Hollow.

 

GEAR TIPS
The spring base has fresh clear water but is a bit of a hike from camp - so take along all available containers to fill. The look-outs are perfect places to brush up on your map and compass skills.
