East Jewett Range in the Catskills

East Jewett Range from Caudal
Average read time 1 min

The East Jewett Range is a twin-peaked mountain that is situated west of Colgate Lake Wild Forest. If you have ever climbed the Blackhead Range and taken in the view from Caudal, then you have seen the mountain; it is right “upfront” 3-miles across the valley (see featured photo). The twin-peaked mass is part of a spur ridge that comes off the Catskill Front starting at Stopple Point and can be called the East Kill Range.

The 3151′ summit and lower summit are entirely on private land, so you’ll need to get the owner’s permission to climb from any direction. According to Micheal Kudish, the peak has about 0.1-square miles of first-growth forest; tread lightly. The East Jewett Range is ranked 70th highest in the Catskill 100 and 35th of the Catskill 67.
