This a route to take if you want to hike Sherrill first. It’s a nice hike up the old logging roads until you start your bushwhack. The way up was like in tiers until we hit some lager size rocks that we had to navigate through. The summit is flat and you have a view of North Dome that’s a mile away.

There’s no trail. It’s kind of a bushwack with herd paths emerging and disappearing along the way. Better in winter without the nettles. Steep for the Catskills and a short climb from 42 to the cannister. It’s not anyone’s favorite of the 35 because of the lack of views and stinging nettles in summer but I think it’s an underrated hike. There are a few nice waterfalls and a series of well preserved stone walls that I was told date to the early 1800s.

Not a bad hike, but truly a trailless hike. It’s pretty much up starting at the parking lot. Overall there was some views

We were unable to find the trail, so we just started climbing up the mountain and bailed after about quarter of a mile.

It was lovely in the winter no navigation needed just follow the tracks

This is a required hike for the 3500 Foot Club (Catskills). It is a trail-less peaks and it entirely uphill from the parking lot to the summit. The ascent is about 1700+ feet in 1.5 miles! Lots of stinging nettles and canes near the summit. I spit-up one of my lungs about half way up this steep mountain. If you find it please let me know. There are limited views from the peak and no entirely clear views. Probably not the sort of hike you'd want to do just for the fun of it. However there is an abundance of small water falls (two different streams) near the base of the mountain that make for good pictures, if you know what you're doing (I don't).
