Explore Wittenberg’s Old Growth Hemlocks

  • Woodland Valley Campground (map)

Wittenberg Mountain boasts one of the most breathtaking views of the Catskills. It also holds some of the oldest hemlock trees in our region! Join Catskill Center staff for an educational trek up this classic Catskills peak, as we dive into the biology and history of our region’s hemlocks, and discuss what’s being done to protect them.

Wittenberg Mountain is a moderately difficult hike of about 7 miles, with plenty of hemlocks along the way. Bring plenty of water, and dress for the weather.


Space is limited to 10 hikers and registration is required for this event.
