Balsam Cap Friday Mt.

Catskill 3500 Trail less summits. These two summits are unmarked and are required for entrance into the Catskill 3500 club.   On average it takes a experienced hiker 6 to 7 hours to complete.  Navigation Skills for Friday MT. and Balsam Cap summits is a valuable asset when going on this hike.  Larger Corporate Guide Services shy away from this hike because even those with experience find this hike difficult. While local guides, those that are more intimate with the area are more than happy to help you reach your goal.
