This is a great "bushwhack" hike, as there is no formal DEC trail. Little Cathead rises over Woods Lake with cliffs on the southwest side that tower almost 600 geet above the lakeshore. The trailhead, which is not marked, is opposite a small turnoff/parking area located on the south side of Benson road.
Follow the northern shore for approximately 0.3 mile to the bottom of the mountain. Then you can make the due north bushwack to the top of the hill, which will be about another 0.5 miles. The views to the south over Woods Lake are very nice.
