Hike Panther from Fox Hollow

This route through the barely-travelled Fox Hollow — a quiet and wild place — offers ever-changing terrain and lots of wildlife. If you crave solitude and scenic views, this is the hike for you.

Devil’s Path

Traverse Panther from Oliverea to Fox Hollow

The views on this hiking trail are some of the best in the Catskills. The route crosses the entire ridge of Panther Mountain, from south to north.  This was one of the first group hikes I went on. Giant Ledge in particular is one of the most popular hikes in the area.
