Panther Mountain (Catskill’s NY) Saturday January 27, 2018
Made a return trip to the Catskill’s of New York State on Saturday January 27 to do a combo bush whack and trail hike up Panther Mountain from the Fox Hollow Trailhead.
Panther mountain stands at 3,720 feet tall , and comes in at 17 highest out of the Catskill 3500 peaks (35 peaks in the Catskills higher than 3,500 feet of elevation)
Was a beautiful blue sky day for a whack/hike. Bushwhacked across state lands in a southerly direction then westerly for a total whack of approximately 3 miles. To a point where I intersected the trail to Panther Mountain from Fox Hollow atop a 3,448 bump on Panther Mountain’s northerly ridge. Followed the very icy trail to the summit of Panther with its multiple viewpoints. Before hiking the marked trail back out to the Fox Hollow trailhead parking area.
