The Catskill 3500 Club was founded in 1962 to foster interest in hiking in the Catskills. Membership is open to all persons who have climbed on foot each of the 33 Catskill peaks above 3500 feet in elevation.

The Club educates both members and the general public in outdoor recreational skills; engages in public service and stewardship; and encourages responsible recreational use of the region's natural resources.
