List Description

In the Northeastern United States, 4000 feet is the magic number for most of the famous peakbagging lists. However, the Catskill Mountains of south-central New York State only have two peaks above this threshold, so the best-known Catskill peak list is the 3500 footers.

Despite the low elevations (compared to the higher summits of New England and the Adirondacks), this is a challenging list to complete, with many of the summits reachable only by bushwhacking. Catskill terrain and trails can be very tough, with steep descents and thick vegatation. 15 of these summits have no maintained trail.

Another interesting wrinkle with this list is that the Catskill Mountain Club requires hikers to climb four of these summits (Slide, Blackhead, Balsam, and Panther) twice, including once in the winter, to obtain official recognition.
