      The 11,500-acre Indian Head Wilderness is on the eastern escarpment of the Catskill Mountains in the Catskill Forest Preserve. The wilderness area is characterized by extremely rugged topography, with five major peaks falling within the unit: Plattekill, Indian Head, Twin, Sugarloaf, and Plateau mountains. The vistas afforded by these peaks attract thousands of hikers annually, as does the Long Path, with passes through the wilderness from west-to-east over most of the high peaks.
