Hike Indian Head Summit via Jimmy Dolan Notch Overlook

4.9 Miles Total - 1512 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

The Indian Head Summit and Jimmy Dolan Notch Overlook Trail is a wonderful, intermediate hike in Kaaterskill Wild Forest.

The view from the summit of this hike is incredible. Bring a sack lunch and a camera - you'll want to stay for a while! This trail is open for use year-round and provides great snowshoeing in the winter and fabulous wildflowers in the spring and summer. This is also a great location for birding!
