Catskill Mountain Wild was started by Catskill Native, Jeff Vincent, after his successful 2014 thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail -- a 2,185 mile long distance hike taking him through the mountains from Georgia to Maine.
Since this life changing journey, Jeff has sough out shorter challenges like the Northville-Placed Trail and The Saranac 6 and now spends a lot of his time tending the garden and small flock of chickens on his homestead.
Born and raised in Catskill, NY Jeff grew up hiking, fishing, camping and exploring the region. He has hiked all of the peaks in the area needed to join the Catskill 3500 Club and has developed a true passion for sharing what he's learned with others.
Like all NYS Licensed Outdoor Guides, Jeff is certified in First Aid & CPR and stays current with his training. He is also an ordained minister, making it possible for him to offer "Wilderness Weddings" through Catskill Mountain Wild.
Jeff Vincent and Catskill Mountain Wild have worked with companies from Victorinox Swiss Army to the Thomas Cole National Historical Site and is excited to create new partnerships and opportunities moving forward.
