Hunter-Westkill Wilderness Area - Unit Management Plan
Located in the High Peaks region of the Catskill Park, the Hunter-Westkill Wilderness Area is comprised of 27,000 acres of Forest Preserve land. The wilderness contains Hunter Moutnain, the second-highest peak in the Catskills, as well as three other summits that are within the Catskill High Peaks Bird Conservation Area.
2008 Catskill Park State Land Master Plan
In August 2008, DEC finalized the revision of the Catskill Park State Land Master Plan (CPSLMP). In the CPSLMP, the Hunter-Westkill Wilderness Area was designated through the re-classification of three other Forest Preserve units: the West Kill-North Dome Wilderness, the Ox Clove Wild Forest, and a portion of the Hunter Mountin Wild Forest. In 1995, a Unit Management Plan (UMP) was completed for the Hunter Mountain Wild Forest.
