Indian Head Wilderness - Unit Management Plan
The Indian Head Wilderness is at the east edge of the Catskill Mountains in the southeastern part of Greene County and the northeastern part of Ulster County. The 16,800 acres of state Forest Preserve land are characterized by extremely rugged topography and include five major peaks as well as lower elevations in the Hudson Valley.
For a description of recreational opportunities in the unit, please visit the Indian Head Wilderness recreation page.
Status of the UMP
In 2008, the Department adopted a revision to the Catskill Park State Land Master Plan. Prior to the plan's adoption, the Indian Head Wilderness was called the Indian Head-Plateau Mountain Wilderness. A Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Indian Head-Plateau Mountain Wilderness was adopted in 1992. If you have questions about the UMP, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
