WHERE: SOUTHERN CATSKILLS
NEAREST TOWN: Denning, NY
Fantastic camping spots just a mile or two in from the trail head are the perfect base camp to hike Table and Peekamoose Mountains or head towards Buroughs Range and summit Slide Mountain – the highest peak in the Catskills at 4180ft. Either way there are lots of great views and plenty of elevation gain.
GETTING THERE (Catskill Trails Map Set – map #143)
Drive to the end of Denning Road Rd and park in parking area.
Always check with the rangers office about the potential of flash floods and extreme heat.
The giant pine trees at camp make for superb hammock camping. The rushing stream at the bottom of the valley is handy to fill up with the 3L bottle and Bush Pot – so boil up lots of water for a pasta dinner and coffee for breakfast.
