I'm glad I did this hike since it is the tallest in Catskills. I was disappointed with two long very rocky sections that are straight up. I understand that hiking is going up and trails will have rocks but one section looked like a rock slide (hence the name?) and climbing through the rocks got old. Also, made it not... More

Catskills are made for hiking and offer very many great trails everywhere. This one will lead you to the highest peak in the Catskills, with several outstanding viewpoints. It is a loop trail 6.3 mile. Recommended.

I did not find the hike that great. I hoping better view as it is the tallest peak in the Catskills. I would say the trail was moderately difficult. I would not recommend the hike to children as the last leg seems to go on forever.

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference publishes a Hike of the Week every week on its website, on Facebook and elsewhere. This hike to the top of the highest peak in the Catskills was very rewarding today, made a bit more interesting in view of the warnings about the approaching blizzard. There would be no tomorrow as far as this... More

There is nice trail with variety of terrain starting from the parking lot near the road and continuing much further after the top of the mountain.

My hike to Slide Mountain started by parking at Woodland Valley parking area. The first major view point was Whittenberg Mountain and it was probably the best part of the hike in my opinion. We missed the second view point which is Cornell Mountain. Apparently it's not obviously noticeable. There was a little climbing involved, but nothing impossible. The Cornell... More

It was not for the faint of heart. Some folks seemed to have no trouble at all. But it was a bit much for us. Maybe we will try something a little easier next time.

I hiked to the peak of Slide Mountain (the views were great but not as breathtaking as I had expected), then doubled back and looped around via the blue/red trail, back to the yellow Phoenicia East trail. A great hike I'd do again. I'm slow so it took me 5 hours.
