Giant Ledge and Panther Mountain, New York August 21, 2010 by VT Polywoda 2 Comments Giant Ledge is one of the most popular hiking destinations in the Catskill Mountains. Why? The views are great, and the hike is a total of only 3 miles. Add another 3.25 miles, and you can bag Panther Mountain. Giant Ledge and Panther Mountain, NY from VT Polywoda on Vimeo.
