Trail Description:

Turn onto Bloomer Rd. off Route 23A just west of Tannersville. At the Y in the road bear left onto Platte Clove Rd. Continue on this road for about 3.75 miles and turn right on Prediger Rd. Go to the end of the road and turn right onto the access road for the new parking area.

After parking in the new parking area, get on the red-blazed Devil's Path and hike .25 miles to the junction with the Jimmy Dolan Notch Trail. Bear right on the Jimmy Dolan Trail. Hike 1.6 miles to Jimmy Dolan Notch. Turn left and hike the .4 miles to the summit of Indian Head. Retrace your steps back to the Notch and continue straight ahead on the red-marked Devil's Path. About .4 miles of steep climbing brings you to the east peak of Twin Mountain. The view from this rock ledge on a clear day is hard to match anywhere in the Catskills. Since this peak is NOT the highest on Twin, continue another .7 miles to "bag" the higher west peak. Retrace your footsteps to Jimmy Dolan Notch. Turn left on the blue-marked Jimmy Dolan Trail. Continue following the markers for 1.6 miles at which time the trail intersects the Devil's Path. Turn left and hike .25 miles back to the parking area.

      The expression should be set up as[masked])=16.5 or else it's not mathematically acceptable even in common core haha. Just being picky since I'm an engineer and STEM supporter.

      Yes, Suzanne, last exit before the GWB is 181st Street exit...When you pick me up at 179th and Broadway, GWB ramp is right there...Thanks Suzanne, I will PM my info to you...
