Hike Kaaterskill High Peak & 2 Plane Wrecks

KHP’s summit is a Catskills classic with a spectacular view from Hurricane Ledge. This route takes in two eerie plane wrecks, and there is much to see on the long trek in and out. This a tough, muddy, rewarding hike.

 Seasonal Notes for Kaaterskill High Peak

Late Fall, Winter & Spring

The steep southern approach to the summit via Hurricane Ledge (which I haven’t done yet) gets iced up in the late fall, and should be attempted only by experienced winter mountaineers. Most knowledgable Catskills hikers consider it off limits for the cold season.
