The Moresville Range in the Catskills is comprised of three peaks just south of the town of Grand Gorge and NW of RT 30 from the height of land in the notch. However, the range can be considered part of a line of mountains that extend from Stamford to Lexington. In this area, there are many Catskill 67 peaks almost all of which are on private land. The 3041′ peak of SW Moresville is one of these. The SW peak has also been known as Mc Gregor Mountain. SW Moresville is ranked 90th highest in the Catskill 100 and 55th of the Catskill 67.
This peak is entirely on private land. You must obtain the landowner’s permission before entering this property.
Please be mindful of COVID19 during this hiking season.
