Devil’s Path Range from Huckleberry Point

The hike to Huckleberry Point is one of the most satisfying in the Catskills,  While it’s a short and moderately difficult trail, it’s in one of the most famously rugged parts of the Catskills, beginning at the Devil’s Kitchen and reaching its stunning destination on the escarpment ledges high above the deep valleys below.  The breathtaking views of the ancient mountains of the eastern Devil’s Path Range will make you thankful you came, whether you’ve been before or not.  Truly a bucket list hike.  We’ll sit for awhile and enjoy the views while we picnic.
