Southwest of Woodstock, this hike strings together the yellow Phoenicia–East Branch Trail, the red Wittenberg–Cornell–Slide Trail, and the blue Curtis–Ormsbee Trail for a rolling exploration at the western extent of the Burroughs Range.
Traversing hemlock-deciduous woodland and lofty conifer-birch forest, this popular trail tops the highest point in the Catskills and visits the Burroughs Plaque and Curtis–Ormsbee Monument. The loop dishes up vistas and strings past rock features.
