This event is primarily concentrated on swimming so if we do only 4-5 miles of hike and spend rest of the time swimming please don't get upset. Peekamoose lot is quite small, holding only 8-10 cars, and no cellphone service. With great weather predicted, it could be getting filled by the time we get there so please carpool as much as possible

Starting at the Parking Lot on Peekamoose road, we will follow the Blue trail past Reconnoiter Rock and some beautiful view points 3.9 miles to Peekamoose Mountain (3843'). We will continue for approx 0.9mi further along the blue trail to Table Mountain (3847') & enjoy more beautiful views! At this point we will turn around and hike the 4.8 miles back to the car. The total distance for this portion is approximately 9.6 miles and the vertical gain of 3200'.Beautiful views from the top of Ashokan Reservoir and several views of the southwest Catskills.

Than we will head to Peekamoose blue hole to cool down . Its 2 mile further north on a same road.
The parking area is located on Peekamoose road (route 42)

    Chandresh the beginning of the description above states 4-5 miles but then later 9.6 miles with 3200 elevation gain. Please clarify.

      If you decide to do whole hike than its 9.6 miles. But as I mentioned this event is more about swimming than hiking so we may cut it short to spend more time swimming.

      1 · August 6

    • Gregory S.

      I'm all for the swimming! Happy to do whatever distance you decide. Just wanted to know what the plan was.
