Panther Mountain from Woodland Valley

The Woodland Valley route to Panther is not a trail section that many people use — which just makes it all the more appealing.

Giant Ledge & Panther

This classic route to Giant Ledge is a short moderate hike with a huge pay-off: a series of ledge views which are spectacular in all seasons. This is one of the most popular hiking trails in the Catskills.

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.
