Hiking: Blackheads & Escarpment Horseshoe - 8 peaks, 14.5 miles of the Catskills best!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Blackheads and Escarpment Trail Horseshoe Hike is a roughly 14.5 mile hike from the trailhead on Elmer Barnum Road, across the Blackhead Range, to the intersection with the Escarpment Trail and then north on the Escarpment Trail over Windham High Peak to the trailhead on Route 23 in Windham.

Along the way you’ll climb up and over Cadual, Camel’s Hump, Thomas Cole, Black Dome, Blackhead, Acra Point, Burnt Knob, and Windham High Peak. Four of the peaks (Thomas Cole, Black Dome, Blackhead, and Windham High Peak) are part of the Catskill 3500 challenge.

This is a challenging and difficult hike with very rough terrain, high mileage, and very few water sources along the way. You’ll hike 14.5 miles and climb more than 4,000 feet along the way.

Important Hiking Considerations:

  1. Weather: Check the weather forecast before your hike and be prepared for changes in conditions. Weather can be unpredictable, so bring appropriate clothing and gear. 
  2. Safety: Some sections of the trail can be steep and rocky, so use caution and watch your footing. It’s also a good idea to hike with a friend or let someone know about your hiking plans. 
  3. Leave No Trace: As with any outdoor activity, remember to follow the principles of Leave No Trace. Pack out any trash, stay on the trail, and be respectful of the natural environment.
