Churchill Mountain is a 3062′ peak in the Catskills. It is one of the Catskill 67. Its most redeeming feature is its close neighbor Utsayantha Mountain.

Having said that, people who do can hike a twofer as both Utsayantha and Churchill can easily be done in one day. Churchill Mountain is ranked 85th highest in the Catskill 100 and 50th of the Catskill 67.
This peak is entirely on private land. You must obtain the landowner’s permission before entering this property.
