Hunter-West Kill Wilderness - Unit Management Plan
Located in the High Peaks region of the Catskill Park, the Hunter-West Kill Wilderness is comprised of 27,000 acres of Forest Preserve land. The wilderness contains portions of 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.

Status of the UMP
In 2008, the Department adopted a revision to the Catskill Park State Land Master Plan (CPSLMP). In the CPSLMP, the Hunter-West Kill Wilderness 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 adopted for the Hunter Mountain Wild Forest. If you have questions about the UMP, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
