WE ALL LOVE TO TRAVEL. WE ALL WANT TO ESCAPE THIS DAILY LIFE ROUTINE AND WANT TO GO ON SUCH ADVENTURE TO MAKE UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES. .WHEN PEOPLE THINK ABOUT TRAVEL THEY GENERALLY IMAGINE THEMSELVES ON A BIKE AND RIDING FOR LONG HOURS ON HIGHWAY BUT TRAVEL IS MUCH MORE THAN THAT. RIDING FOR LONG HOURS WILL SURE MAKE YOU HAPPY BUT IT LACKS ADVENTURE. ADVENTURE IS ABOUT EXPLORING THE UNEXPLORED AND THOSE WHO SEEK ADVENTURE GO ON TREK.
TREKKING GENERALLY INVOLVES HIKING FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER VIA A LESS FREQUENT ROAD SURROUNDED BY SCENIC BEAUTY ALL AROUND. BUT NOT EVERY TREK CAN BE CONQUERED AND THEN COMES THE IMPOSSIBLE DEVIL’S PATH IN CATSKILL MOUNTAIN’S OF USA .
The trail is full of extremely rocky terrain, vertical slopes, extreme downhills, and very slippery sections. Waterfalls are found throughout as well as a number of bears, so it’s highly suggested you carry pepper spray and hang your food above ground. Winding your way through rocky chutes, down steep gaps that require you to use your hands and feet, and up sheer rock cliffs will challenge even the experienced trekker. Upon completion, the trails gift you with spectacular views of the Catskill Range making it a most worthwhile challenge.
WHY IS THIS MOST DIFFICULT ?
IT IS CHALLENGING DUE TO CHALLENGING CLIMBS BOTH UP AND DOWN AND STEEP GAPS BETWEEN FOUR PEAKS OF THE RANGE WHICH REQUIRE HIKERS HAND MORE THAN FEET.THIS HIKE IS VERY DIFFICULT TERRAIN BUT THE RESULT IS THE SPLENDOUS VIEW OF CATSKILL MOUNTAIN RANGE.
