In the Catskills there are thirty-five peaks that are over 3,500 feet in elevation and are noted in the Catskill 3500 Club. The Catskill 67 are the next highest peaks in the Catskills, of which, 63 are over 3,000 feet in elevation. These peaks are featured in a hiking guide, The Catskill 67, a recommended book from the ADK Mountain Club. Narrow Notch Mountain at 3220 feet is the 59th highest point in the Catskills, or #24 for the Catskill 67.

The main route for hiking to the summit of Narrow Notch Mountain starts from a parking area located along Relay Road in the col between Narrow Notch and East Gray Mountains. The GPS coordinates of the parking area is N42 18.904 W74 36.692. From the parking area you'll follow a woods road, eventually steeply up toward the southern summit of Narrow Notch Mountain. Prior to reaching the southern summit are two spectacular views.

To continue to the tree covered main summit of Narrow Notch Mountain is reached following the woods road on the ridge. Eventually, where the main ridge turns left (west) is where you'll want to leave the woods road and start the bushwhacking portion of this hike. It is also important to make sure to stay on state land in Relay State Forest. Some hikers also hike from the parking area and go in the other direction to reach East Gray Mountain, another Catskill 67er.

To get more detailed info on the route to Narrow Notch Mountain and other Catskill 67 hikes, we recommend purchasing the hiking guide The Catskill 67. The book gives more info on the route to this mountain. Look below for a topographic map of Narrow Notch Mountain to help assist in planning your hiking adventure.
