Ticetonyk Information

Ticetonyk Mountain is a steep, prominent lower Catskills mountain on the north side of the Ashokan Reservoir, near Phoenicia, New York.

Ticetonyk Meaning

The name “Ticetonyk” is taken directly from the name “Matthias Ten Eyck” and is pronounced “tyce-tahn-ike”.

Harpers Magazine (Volume 54 from 1877) refers to the mountain as “Tys ten Eyck”.

The mountain is also described as “Tys ten Eyck” in a 1944 New York State Museum Bulletin, published by The University of the State of New York, which describes local mountain names thusly:

“These names appear on maps in much corrupted forms, such as Ticetonyk and Tonshi. ’Tys is a Dutch abbreviation for Mattys (Matthew or Matthias), while Taantje means auntie and on the oldest maps we find it as Taantje Hoek, auntie’s corners, at a road intersection. This last name and Ohayo (“Ohio”) mountain have been much shifted around on the maps or inter-changed.”

Ticetonyk Prominence

Although not one of the Catskills High Peaks, Ticetonyk is highly recognizable due to its triangular shape, steep slopes, and commanding location. It is the 8th most prominent mountain in the Catskills.
