Moderate rain, heavy at times while starting out, tapering to a light rain/mist by the end. A cool, wet 42F with 25mph winds on the summit!
Views from Giant Ledge were phenomenal, despite the heavy fog enveloping the surrounding views. Overall a great experience. A bit rushed due to weather: took me just over 3hrs to complete. I'll definitely be back on a nicer day.

Did Panther and Slide both as quick out-and-backs, towards 3500er requirements. A nice day, microspikes sufficed the whole time. Saw some folks in bare boots too.

Giant Ledge is one of my favorite spots in the Catskills. Camped here the night before doing Panther + most of the Burroughs loop, clockwise.

Panther summit had great Balsam Fir fragrance and ok views, best views are definitely on the ledges. Fairly quiet hike in the morning, a bit busier on the way down in the afternoon.

Visited here (Giants Ledge) with my brother Charlie back in July and since I missed Panther I decided to return.
This trip I spent a quiet night on top of Giants Ledge- no one else up there and I felt blessed indeed! Enjoyed great sunset and sunrise. Got water from good spring on the way up. Was visited by Ranger in the Morning who tried to fiqure out if I had camped illegially or not. As I was not taken to jail I climbed Panther.

Since that first visit I have returned here several times and I always enjoy the trip. It is usually a trail where you see few other hikers once you leave Giants Ledge and the views are great.

Climbed via the Giant Ledge - Panther Mountain - Fox Hollow Trail from Route 47. A pleasant late summer hike in the Catskills. The humidity obstructed some of the views from Giant Ledge but as the fog burnt off the views improved. Not much to see from the summit though.

Climbed in the sun to Giant Ledge. When we got to Panther, the clouds came in and it started raining. Not much for views, but another great day and the rain gear got some use!
