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. Willowemoc Mountain at 3224 feet is the 58th highest point in the Catskills, or #23 for the Catskill 67.

The main route for hiking to the summit of Willowemoc Mountain is to simply take the blue marked Mongaup-Hardenburgh Trail from Beaverkill Road. There is a small parking area located along the road. The GPS coordinates are N42 00.740 W74 37.367. The trail immediately descends and crosses the Beaverkill River on a suspension bridge. It is just over two miles hiking along the trail to the mountain, however the actual summit is off the trail. This means you'll need to do a short bushwhack to reach the tree covered summit.

Sand Pond Mountain, another Catskill 67er, is located 1.3 miles along the Mongaup-Hardenburgh Trail for those looking to hit another mountain. You can also start your hiking adventure from the DEC trailhead along Flugertown Road. The GPS coordinates are N41 56.945 W74 38.125. This route will take you over Sand Pond Mountain first, then on to Willowemoc Mountain.

To get more detailed info on the different routes to Willowemoc Mountain 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 Willowemoc Mountain to help assist in planning your hiking adventure.
