  • 20th Anniversary Hike

    On 10/4/1997, my wife and I visited the Catskills for the first time. We climbed Twin and Sugarloaf the first day and Indian Head the second. Since we were going on a trip this week I realized I could do a hike on 10/4 for the 20th anniversary. I am pretty sure I have done at least one Catskills hike in each of the 20 years. I'm very sure I have met a lot of nice people and made some great friends.

    Since I am more fit now than 20 years ago, I raised the bar to the four peaks of the Eastern Devil's Path from Indian Head to Rt 214. Without a late start from driving down, I would have done it all.

    It was a nice fall day, a bit warm, but I made good time in spite of the dusty and leaf-covered rocks, finishing in under six hours. It was a great day to be in the woods.

    I can't promise, but maybe I will be back for another 20 years.

        Joe where did you hike before the first Catskill hike?

        A couple of good choices for starters.

        Twin is my favorite. I climbed it the first time via the Dolan notch but not before climbing Indian Head. I poured over the guide book description and the map with it before choosing it over the Pecoy Notch. And that day I didn't go over to the higher Twin either. So, I had to go back later to get it for my 35r list and then went by Pecoy Notch. Now that is now my preferred route.
