Black Dome Range Trail

"So today my original plan was to hike Thomas Cole and Black Dome mountains to check off 2 more mountains off my winter Catskill 3500 requirement. I hiked th he first 1.3 miles and things started to get real difficult between Caudal and Camel's hump. That .7 miles was rough, breaking through 2+ feet of snow drifts basically the whole way. My legs were already tired. I kept falling. Before I even made it to Camel's Hump I was thinking about turning back. I made it up a few minutes later and could see Tommy Cole, just under a mile away. It was hard for me to be that close and have to turn around" - LGH-Topple, Feb 9, 2018
"Laura, Steve, Tim and I went out and played in the snow. After tagging Blackhead we started breaking trail acrossed the remaining peaks, humps and bumps of the range. Sunday’s snowstorm brought back winter but not enough fluff for the rock scrambles. A bit challenging getting up through there with the big shoes on our feet. We persevered with creative hand and foot work and managed to get to the summit view for lunch. On to an easier sashay over to Tommy Cole." - Nimblefoot, Feb 6, 2018
"Out on a solo hike to tag the three peaks in the Blackhead range. From Lockwood gap I bopped out to Black Dome and Thomas Cole breaking through a few inches of snow since the last hikers. " - Nimblefoot, Dec 16, 2017
"Back to the Blackhead range to hit Thomas Cole and Black Dome finishing up my 15th round in the 3-season. Still late fall conditions on the trail and fairly warm in the bright sunshine." - Nimblefoot, Dec 4, 2017
"After doing my trail maintenance on the Diamond Notch trail I headed over to Elmer Barnum road to visit the summits of Thomas Cole and Black Dome. The parking lot was overflowing on such a nice day. With the bright sun and temperatures in the mid 80's it was a bit toasty hiking in the open stretches of the trail." - Nimblefoot, Jun 11, 2017
