Bearpen

The Catskill 3500’s only dud. A boring mountain. You will be bored. A view near the peculiarly-wooded summit is… not too boring? But then you hike down a boring mountain. Bring a non-boring friend to help keep you awake.

Hike Vly & Bearpen

Personal opinion: these are the only two boring Catskill 3500 hikes. Vly has a few small ledges to keep things interesting, barely, but I swear the trailed route up Bearpen has almost nothing to recommend it. Luckily, you can bag both of these hills together on a single, easy out-and-back.
