Evergreens ring the south summit.

Finally had a day free paired with good weather, so headed down to the Catskills to climb 3650 foot Twin Mountain, the only Catskill peak with two recognized summits. There are a couple of different trail options to access Twin but I decided to climb up Pecoy Notch to the Devil's Path via Roaring brook Road. Much of the Pecoy Notch Trail involves climbing, but never steeply through a hardwood forest.
Descending the mountain is often times just as challenging as climbing and footing becomes even more essential.
