  • Windham High Peak, Blackhead Range

    Happy Hikers’ New Year!

    We chose to begin the winter round with the northern peaks. Our original plan of hiking Windham High Peak as a short bushwhack loop from the new DEP access on Big Hollow Road was stymied by the inability to park in the roadside parking area there. So we hiked on trails exclusively, with Windham High Peak reached out and back from Peck Road and the Blackhead Range by the ’T-Bone route from the end of Big Hollow Road.

    It was a beautiful day to start the season and many hikers were out enjoying the snow covered trails. All the trails we covered were in great shape, hard packed snow with little ice. We wore snowshoes from start to finish on both legs of the DoubleShot. We saw some familiar faces along the way and just about everyone was wearing one sort of modern snowshoe or another.

    Looking forward to more sunshine on Westkill today and thanks to TFR for paving the way.
