This trail covers three Catskill peaks ( part of the Catskills 3500) along a beautiful mountain range. Offers fantastic views. To do this as a one-way hike visitors can shuttle cars or drop a bike off at the Big Hollow Trailhead and bike back to the starting trailhead when finished.

We hiked Blackhead and Black Dome from Lockwood Gap. This was a nice hike that was enjoyable since there was views since the leaves were off the trees. The trail up to Black Dome wasn’t bad just a little rock scramble that had great views of Blackhead over your shoulder. The trail up Blackhead seem steeper and there was ice on the trail that was easily avoided.

Great and nice hiking day with my father-in-law! We did a shorter version of the loop I guess since with the gps tracker after we passed Thomas Cole Mt and we came back, the total distance covered was 8,5miles (3,530ft total ascent). In any case great experience at the Catskills! Very recommended- pay attention to the ice in some parts of path when facing north.

We did a hike up to Thomas Cole Mountain only due to the weather situation. The hike was a nice pleasant one that took you over two other mountains before summiting Thomas Cole. If the weather was better we would’ve kept hiking the Range.

Wouldn't call this moderate, but fun all the same. Steep climbs, lots of loose rocks. Views on Blackhead and Black Dome. NO views on Thomas Cole. Saw a lot of bear sign.
