Halcott, Sunset Bushwhack

I didn’t think too much of Halcott when I did it last spring, but this hike changed my mind. There’s a lot to see: the woods are spectacular, the ravines are beautiful and, at sunset, the summit is a Catskill photographer’s dream.

 Seasonal Notes for Halcott


Chest-high nettles in the growing season. Oof. The cold/frost knocks ’em back in the fall. Until then, plan for extra time to work around, or through, this mountain’s infamous stinging stands.
