Fir Mountain Attempt, Catskills

June 17, 2012
Distance: 5.5 miles
Time: 4 hours 8 minutes
Map: Catskill Trails Map Set
Parking: See directions link
Restrooms: None
Notes: Catskill 3500 footer, bushwhack
Post hike dinner: Garden Cafe on the Green, Woodstock
Directions: Fir Mountain

This is a bushwhack. The bushwhack (based on the directions we used) starts near the lean to.
We didn't understand where to start the bushwhack, and we ended up following the wrong spur of the stream. We turned back, and figured out where we should start the bushwhack the next time we attempt this hike.

We headed to the lean to and crossed the stream there. We should have stayed right on the trail.
Lean to
The lean to had a number of cooking tools, including this knife.
Cooling off

Checking out where we should have gone off trail...
