Red Hill Fire Tower Snowshoeing Tour for Beginners

Red Hill Fire Tower Snowshoeing Tour for Beginners | undefined

Join one of our AMGA certified mountain guides on this one-day Red Hill Fire Tower snowshoeing tour for beginners and explore the stunning Catskill mountains!

1 Day

Jan - Mar, Dec



The Red Hill Fire Tower is a historical landmark in the Catskills, and also a great vantage point! This emblematic spot attracts hikers and snowshoers year round. Because it is a relatively simple ascent, it is perfect for beginners. On this Red Hill Fire Tower snowshoeing tour we take you to the summit of Red Hill and show you the ropes of this fun winter sport!

We will begin our excursion early in the morning to make the most out of the daylight hours. First, we will start off with a snowshoeing overview and brief tour guidelines. Then we will set off on the path to the top of Red Hill. Once at the summit, we will have a chance to climb the historical fire tower and to take in the stunning views. We will stop for a moment at some point to enjoy a packed lunch and share a beautiful moment out in the Catskills. Finally, we will head back down.

This tour is open to beginners. Of course, anyone that wants to join the excursion that has some more experience is welcome. However, keep in mind that the pace and content will be suited for people with little to no snowshoeing experience.  A good physical level is necessary. Although this is a simple ascent, it is still a nice challenge that will get your heart rate pumping. Of course, we will be there every step of the way to guide you and help you out with whatever you might need.

Are you ready to try something new this winter? Would you like to discover one of the Catskills emblematic spots? Then book your place now and join us on this fun snowshoeing ascent to the Red Hill Fire Tower!

Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



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.



All perfect



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!
