Catskill Hundred Highest: Main

Created, compiled and researched by Mark Schaefer

Acme Maps by Tom Rankin

Some people like to hike to complete lists and find this an added motivation. Many people have completed the Catskill 35 list and the Winter 35 list. For those people looking around for a new challenge, Mark Schaefer has created a list of the hundred highest peaks in the Catskills. The list actually has 102 peaks listed since there are some ties near the end.

Private land issues: Two of the 3500 summits (Graham and Doubletop) and many of the summits below 3500 are either privately owned, or have approaches that are. Unless there is an conservation easement (e.g. the Roundtop near Bearpen) permission to hike on private lands should be obtained.

Criteria for the LIST Google Map 100 peaks Working with ACME Maps Checklists: Excel PDF

Key to the code which follows the rank and elevation:

T = maintained Trail S = Ski trail
R = Rough road U = Unmaintained trail, no canister, e.g. Eagle’s summit is a short walk on the Sids Notch path
C = Canister and no trail (paths may have formed) B = Bushwhack with no canister (some are short whacks, e.g. Dry Brook Ridge and Burnt Knob)
