ⓘ Slide Mountain (Ulster County, New York)

Slide Mountain is the highest peak in the Catskill Mountains of the U.S. state of New York. It is located in the town of Shandaken in Ulster County. While the 4.180-foot contour line on topographic maps is generally accepted as its height, the exact elevation of the summit has never been officially determined by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, and many informal surveys suggest the mountain may actually top 4.200 feet above sea level.

While he was not identified as ranges highest peak until the late 19th century, it played a prominent role in the history of the Catskills. Renowned naturalist John Burroughs wrote memorably of his climbs a slide, and it helped get the Catskills added to new York Forest preserve. Bicknells thrush was first identified on its summit.
