Overview

This is a difficult loop trail to Slide Mountain in Slide Mountain Wilderness. Hiking the loop in the clockwise fashion seemed the way to go. Trails are very well marked I would consider this more of a moderate than difficult hike. The peak is fairly lush with trees so take advantage of the places where you can catch some awesome viewpoints of the Catskills. As crazy as it sounds, the peak smells wonderful it is what I'll always remember about Slide Mountain! Great Hike.

Taking Children

I would recommend motivated children for this hike


This is an alternate route for Slide Mountain via Wittenberg Cornell Slide Trail.
