About

My name is Ralph Bressler and I have been hiking in the Catskill Mountains seriously since the summer of 2005. I was born and raised in Sullivan County and did some hiking when I was growing up. I live in Livingston Manor, NY which is right on the border of the Catskill Park. I have completed the Catskill 35s and have hiked most several times. I also completed the Catskill Highest Hundred and the New Jersey 1K peaks as the fourth person to do so. In the summer of 2013 I worked on the Finger Lakes Trail and have now hiked from Cortland to the eastern terminus near Table Mountain in the Catskills. During the summer of 2014, I finished the AT sections in New York State and completed the Long Path Sections north of Windham High Peak. During the early fall of 2014 I completed the Catskill Mountains Club’s All Trails list as the second finisher. During the late fall of 2014 I have been working on The sections of the Long Path in the south. As on December 2014 I only have section 1 and 2 to complete!
