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. Richmond Mountain at 3220 feet is the 61st highest point in the Catskills, or #26 for the Catskill 67.

The hike to the tree covered summit of Richmond Mountain features a walk along an old CCC road and then a bushwhack on the ridge to the summit. There is a parking area just across from the old CCC road on County Route 32C. The GPS coordinates are N42 21.687 W74 17.349 of the parking area. Walk past the boulders and a gravel pit along the old CCC road up to a col that marks the start of Richmond Mountain's summit ridge. This is where the bushwhack begins.

Be sure to stay on the right side of the ridge in order to remain on state land and keep from wandering onto private property. To get more detailed info on Richmond 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.
