Park Description:

"Hunter Mountain Wild Forest encompasses almost 11,000 acres in the northeast portion of the Catskill Park. The forest is located in Greene County in the towns of Hunter, Jewett, and Lexington. Hunter Mountain Wild Forest is mountainous. There are six main peaks located within the forest: Hunter Mountain (4,040'), Southwest Hunter (3,740'), Rusk Mountain (3,680'), Evergreen Mountain 3,360'), Pine Island Mountain (3,140'), and Packsaddle Mountain (3,100'). The area is rugged and there is limited access to the Forest. There are several year round and seasonal streams which either flow to the Schoharie in the north or to the Westkill in the south."   [Source: web site in Contact Information below]
