The herd path to Little Ashokan is one of the sketchier routes I’ve hiked in the Catskills, particularly the steep hike down Ashokan High Point’s east side where the route to the col is characterized by loose dirt, loose rocks, and lots of blowdown.
On Little Ashokan’s summit I stood in a magical blueberry heath and enjoyed a spectacular view of the Ashokan Reservoir below, framed in back by the long Shawangunk Ridge. FYI, I also saw lots of bear poop.
This is not a causal hike, but a tricky bushwhack that’s recommended only to experienced off-trail mountain hikers.
