Wittenberg

Is the finest view in the Catskill Park to be had from the Wittenberg’s ledge? Or does the view from Twin’s ledge edge it out? The only way to know is to climb both.

Slide, Cornell, Wittenberg: Epic Catskills Hiking

This is my favorite tough-but-beautiful Catskills hike. Long, rugged, technical and remote, it brings you over three summits to some of the most stunning lookouts in the Catskill Park.

Best Hike in the Catskills: Wittenberg, Cornell, Slide

This hike does not disappoint. It’s long and difficult, with some hairy sections, but the rewards are enormous and regular, pouring generously into your day, one after another. I’ve decided it’s the best hike in the Catskills. This hike has a lot of elevation gain.

Hike Wittenberg & Cornell from Woodland Valley

This is a long and tiring but incredibly rewarding hike. This hike was also memorable because my buddy and I met two hikers from New Jersey who got into serious trouble the same day, kicking off a massive rescue response.
