Hiking

Great trail and the view at Wittenberg is worth it. The difficulty level is hard and you will be scrambling over a number of areas. We hiked when it was raining but eventually the rain cleared. Went on thanksgiving . It was cool for most of the hike but at the summit on the exposed face it’s definitely significantly more chilly. Prepare with layers. Hats gloves and good wool socks are a must

HikingGreat!

Great well marked trail. Most of it follows a riverbed so It can get quite slippery. Amazing view. Also there’s a phone at check-in if anyone lost it?

Tough little trail with amazing views, especially at sunrise! I made a video on YouTube of the hike, just search Maps With No Roads on YouTube if you want a look at what the trail is like.

HikingGreat!Icy

Very nice trail. We did it clockwise in a sunny day below freezing. Cold and slippery ice on the three summit. Would definitely recommend to do it clockwise as the second half is easier. Some very easy climbing before the three summits. 6h 1/2 with a good pace. Long but first half very rewarding.

Tough and challenging hike. Did ii clockwise from woodland valley, and took about 6 1/2 hours. Some wet and muddy spots, otherwise trail in great condition . Some tough sections , but also some very easy sections as well.

This is one of my favorite hikes of the Catskills. Fun rock scrambles and great views! I wanted to do a sunset hike, so I arrived in the afternoon on Saturday. As this is a popular hike, the lot was nearly full. When you park in the lot, cross the street to the neighboring campground & you’ll find the trailhead there. Once you cross the bridge, you begin to ascend. There’s no warm-up on this hike. My favorite stretch of the trail is the last mile to Wittenberg. There are multiple fun rock scrambles! When you reach the top of Wittenberg, enjoy one of the best views in the Catskills. The Ashokan reservoir is on display before you! This is a good spot to eat a snack before you head to Cornell. On the way to Cornell you’ll hit the actual summit of Wittenberg & encounter some more fun-filled rock scrambles. There’s a great view of Slide Mt. near the peak of Cornell. While there were patches of ice near the peaks, I didn’t need microspikes. It was much colder at the summit, so layering up is a good idea.

Hiked with 3 elementary aged kids and had a great time. Went just to Giant Ledge and back. We took our time and explored along the way. Recommend good hiking shoes for mud and rough terrain. great views.

Pretty rocky with a few scrambles but definitely an ok trail for beginner hikers. Absolutely gorgeous views and totally worth it.

It was good. Really muddy and several rocks were completely iced over so you have to be careful going over those. There was also a spring, but it was a small trickle. Most likely because of the winter. It was gorgeous!

HikingGreat!

This was an excellent hike. Loved the challenge of the rock scrambles and the views from Giant Ledge and Panther Mountain were awesome! To avoid crowds try to start your hike before 9:30am.

HikingMuddy

This was a fairly easy hike with spots of incline. I would recommend coming to see the sunrise or possibly camping out with all the options on top. The lookout from the top was nice but with the amount of people on the trail it was hard to find an quiet spot.

Though it was muddy in some spots, the view from even 1600 was well worth it! Pretty rocky especially on the first mile up or so. Amazing experience!

This was mostly my fault. I didn't bring a mat or two adult sized sleeping bags. My buddy and I had to use a kid sized sleeping bag as a pillow and the adult one as a blanket. We slept on the thin tent boundary between us and the stone cold ground. Our backs got poked by roots and rocks all night while wind howled down the mountain, threatening to collapse my puny Target tent. We shivered from 6 pm to 6 am, then booked it the hell out of there. The trail was great though.
