Join the Catskill Mountain Club to hike the Shavertown Trail near the Pepacton Reservoir’s Shavertown Bridge Boat Launch. After a good climb for the first mile there will be a beautiful view overlooking the reservoir. We will enjoy the view and walk around Snake Pond. If the group is inclined, we will continue up an easier climb for a 3.3 mile loop returning to the pond and then back to the parking area.

About the Catskill Mountain Club
The Catskill Mountain Club is an all-volunteer grass-roots organization of outdoor enthusiasts dedicated to providing a wide range of non-motorized outdoor group activities throughout the Catskill Park and the larger Catskill Mountain region. These activities include hiking, camping, cycling, snowshoeing, kayaking and canoeing. We seek to provide a variety of recreational opportunities that meet the interests and abilities of a wide range of age levels. We encourage CMC members and event participants to suggest and help organize activities for their enjoyment and that of others.
The CMC was founded in 2004 on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Catskill Park. We are committed to good stewardship of our environment through safe, sustainable and responsible activities, including building and maintaining trails on newly opened New York City watershed lands and on New York State park lands and offering informative events to help our members learn about the natural and human histories and resources of the Catskills. We also seek to promote the safe, sustainable and responsible enjoyment of our pristine streams and reservoirs, while protecting the surrounding environment.
The CMC promotes the improvement of regional and local economies by providing and supporting the development of improved public outdoor recreational opportunities and facilities that are consistent with preserving and protecting natural resources. We support efforts to bring the activities of the region’s various outdoor recreation clubs and associations to the attention of as many people as possible.
Our interest is in the entire Catskill region including, but not limited to, the Catskill Park and the high peaks. We encourage people to explore many different areas of the Catskill Park and Forest Preserve as well as other public lands in the greater Catskill region, such as our State Forests, Wildlife Management Areas, Special Use Areas, Unique Areas, and New York City Watershed Lands.
