I decided to pick up the Catskill HP and P2K after visiting my parents for xmas. The trail was a little icy and there weren't many views.

HotovenNice Warm up hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 26, 2008


This was fun to do in the winter given all the snow we had to get through, and it being a short hike. So it took a while but was just a warm up for the next day. Perfect little warm up hike, but it was fogged in at the top.

Date Climbed: May 2, 2009


Maybe I'm just spoiled, but the majority of trails (maintained) that I traveled out West were not so rough (aside from the length and altitude.) These trails out here are closer to 2nd class hiking. I did love the approach from the East, lots of great class 3, and steep, steep sections of trail. Not so great a view from the top. Wittenberg, and the ridge to Cornell was better

Climbed via the Curtis-Ormsbee Trail from Winnisook. My first time in the Catskills. An easy hike up a Slide's gentle western slope. The summit was fogged in and there was still some early morning rhyme ice trees.

I think I'm right about the date. The trail was a solid sheet of ice.

Amazing views on the trail. The climb up to slide was steep, snowy and icy. Great adventure.

Date Climbed: Dec 25, 2007


Climbed the easy side Christmas Day 2007. About 3 inches of snow at the base increased to 8 inches on the summit. Clouds above 3500 feet obscured any view. Still a nice day to be hiking and to break out the snowshoes.

I took the LONG route to Slide over Wittenberg and Cornell, and I would say you do the same! Then made a loop and returned to Woodland Valley through a short cut and the Phoenicia-East Branch Trail

A group of us snowshoed up the trail from the west. Spent the night on the summit. It was one of my coldest nights out ever. The air temp. that night was about -20F and the wind was blowing.

While looping part of Slide Mountain Wilderness Area via Phoenicia-East Branch and Wittenberg-Cornell-Slide trails, starting from West Branch Road Trail head, saw my first porcupine in the wild going down Slide towards Cornell. Had a Terrier and Malamute along who were very interested in it also.
