In the Catskills there are thirty-five peaks that are over 3,500 feet in elevation and are noted in the Catskill 3500 Club. The Catskill 67 are the next highest peaks in the Catskills, of which, 63 are over 3,000 feet in elevation. These peaks are featured in a hiking guide, The Catskill 67, a recommended book from the ADK Mountain Club. South Vly at 3360 feet is the 50th highest point in the Catskills, or #15 for the Catskill 67.

The hike to reach South Vly requires a bushwhack in Halcott Mountain Wild Forest. The main bushwhack route starts from a DEC parking area along Condon Hollow Road. The GPS coordinates of this parking area is N42 13.015 W74 24.790 From the parking area you'll walk up the woods road to the ridge, then bushwhacking along the ridge to reach South Vly. The other way along the ridge would take you to Sleeping Lion Mountain, another Catskill 67 peak.

To get more detailed info on the bushwhack hike to South Vly and other Catskill 67 hikes, we recommend purchasing the hiking guide The Catskill 67. The book gives more info on the route to this mountain. Look below for a topographic map of South Vly as well as Sleeping Lion Mountain to help assist in planning your hiking adventure.
