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. Olderbark Mountain at 3440 feet is the 39th highest point in the Catskills, or #4 for the Catskill 67.

To reach Olderbark Mountain features a steep bushwhack after a short hike along the Mink Hollow Trail. The best place to start your bushwhack is is after hiking between 0.3-0.6 miles along the Mink Hollow Trail, and head along the steep eastern flank of Olderbark Mountain. Aim for the northern col of the mountain, although you will have some seriously steep bushwhacking, but it's somewhat better than aiming straight toward the summit.

Olderbark Mountain is located in the Indian Head Wilderness of the Catskill Forest Preserve. To get more info on this hike and other Catskill 67 hikes, we recommend purchasing the hiking guide The Catskill 67. The book gives more info on the bushwhack routes and camping possibilities. Look below for a DEC map of Indian Head Wilderness and a topographic map of Olderbark Mountain to help assist in planning your adventure.
