Fun peak. Steep, and then a nice long ridge walk. One of the easiest on the DP.
The first big mountain I've climbed:)
Like the rest of the Devil's Path peaks, I've been up Plateau in numerous ways at numerous times of the year in numerous combinations. I love them all though! Another rugged, fun Catskills excursion!
Climbed Plateau, then made a quick drive over to Windham.
Great hike. A cool 42F most of the day. Moderate snowfall while climbing Plateau and close to 2 inches on the summit! Due to the slick conditions, it took about 3 hours to complete Plateau. Windham took less than 3 hours to complete. Another couple down!
First peak on the east-bound Devil's Path. Went with Kelli.
Wasn't planning on doing this mountain but after Hunter I saw the trail for this on the side of the road and I said "why not?" The first fifty minutes was a sharp uphill climb but the top was a nice walk along a wooded mountain with occasional overlooks here and there. Weather was atrocious and went back down with a plastic trash bag full of trash left at the overlook. Hopefully someone else can get the cans I missed (I was already taxed just trying to keep the bag from falling apart).
From Mink Hollow lean-to to Rt 214. Beautiful day, not too cold. Went with a meetup.com group.
Camped just east of Rt 214, then did eastern Devil's Path.
Parked at Notch Inn Rd, took road to Warner Creek Trail/Long Path up to Devils Path. Hiked out to eastern overlook, back across to western overlooks, down to Rt 214 and back to the car. Nice day with good views.
Very nice hike for my Catskills intro.Hiked up from rt214 and trekked the whole summit.Only a few veiwing opportunities,but the wooded summit was pleasant hiking for miles.
Had to break trail in about 5 feet of snow. I made it though, and got to jump down the steep sections, which was a blast!
Climbed with Sugarloaf and Twin via the Devil's Path from Elka Park Road. A good fall hike with some great foliage this time of year. A steep climb to the summit from the notch. Not much in the way of views.
Last one of my three days there. Steep, tiring hike first thing in the morning. Up from Mink Hollow Road. Easiest hiking across the top ending in two amazing views. Really enjoyed this one. Only butt-planted once on the way down. Rock wet from thunderstorms the night before.
came in from the roaring kill trailhead. hike was certainly as described by others, steep and taxing. wanted to climb sugarloaf too but the snow started down hard, but made for a very enjoyable return watching the trail become invisible beneath the snow.
Took the Mink Hollow trail to the Devil's Path. It's always interesting on the Devil's Path.
Hiked over Indian Head, Twin, Sugarloaf and finally Plateau. Absolute exhaustion.
With nothing else to do, I took a friend up on an offer to "go for a walk". This was my introduction to what has become a most enjoyable way of life.
Any time of the year the two mile summit is worth the hike. I backpacked solo in th esummer and dayhiked it with N. Ohanian in the winter.
