Description

There is something wonderfully deceiving about the Kaaterskill High Peak (3,655 feet). Otherwise known as KHP, this amazing mountain at first glance looks like it is the highest mountain in the entire Catskills. However, it is actually only the 23rd highest mountain in the range. Yet despite its official position, the peak nonetheless appears to reign supreme. And on this full day hiking adventure, you will get to venture right to its summit!

The path we will take to the summit of the Kaaterskill High Peak is approximately 8 miles long. The path is rugged, and has several obstacles. As a result, it is important that you are in good physical condition. Also, because there are some technical aspects to this trek, you should have some previous experience. There is also an approximate 1,800 foot cumulative gain on this trek as well.

Throughout the path, you will get to see a number of amazing things that detail the area’s history. A few examples include an old Mohawk Indian camp. There are also the remains of 2 plane crashes that took place in the late 1980s present in the area.

After trekking through some ungroomed trail, we will reach the Kaaterskill High Peak’s summit. And from there, we will make our way to the famous Hurricane Ledge, where you can enjoy some truly remarkable views.

Send me a request and join me on this amazing adventure to the top of the Kaaterskill High Peak. The trail, while tough, will lead you to a conclusion that is undeniable in its beauty. And just like those who have scaled the peak many years earlier, you too may end up believing it is the highest peak in the Catskills.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
