Ascent Trip ReportFrom Prediger Road trailhead (which has a cool old barn with signs before the parking area) went to Twin Mt. first. As typical of the Catskills, very rocky trail with amazing rock and boulder structures. Some scrambles but nothing too tough. Really nice views at the Twin Mt. Overlook. Hit the summit then doubled back to Jimmy Dolan Notch for a nice, long view. Then up to Indian Head summit, another viewing area and Sherman's Overlook. Looped back down. There is s really steep section right after Sherman's Overlook where extra caution is needed (I had to "ladder down" backwards. Small children and dogs would definitely need help). Then headed to Prediger's Road for 1.9 mile hike back to parking area.
