    Luke Patterson reviewed Blackhead Mountain Loop Trail

    about 1 month ago

    Challenging, scenic hike, removed from the worst of the Catskill Mountain summer crowds, with longer options easily available (adding Black Dome and/or Thomas Cole, specifically). Personally, I would recommend following this route in a clockwise direction (opposite to what’s posted here). There are several spectacular viewpoints along the trail; I especially loved looking up the spine of Black Dome, as we descended into the notch, after summiting Black Head.

    Short, relatively easy, enjoyable hike that was simply exhilarating! The heavy rain storms last night & into this morning transformed the creek into a thundering, magnificent torrent, crashing & tumbling down into the gorge below. Highly recommend!

    This is not a 5-star hike, especially when compared to either Twin Mountain or Sugarloaf, which are in the immediate vicinity. Having completed all three, either Twin or SL would be a better - i.e., more rewarding - experience, in my opinion. The overlooks on Indian Head aren’t the best (putting it mildly), as most are overgrown and obstructed. The ones that aren’t blocked look east over the developed Hudson Valley. Even Huckleberry Point across the way - while much easier - offers superlative, unobstructed views to this section of the Devil’s Path. The hike itself is challenging and I’m very happy to have completed it, but if you’re limited on time, you might just want to consider another local option.
