Saturday, September 14, 10 AM – Hike to Huckleberry Point

Come out to Huckleberry Point where you can experience an amazing view of Indian Head, Plattekill Mountains and New England. This hike is a moderate 3 hour hike which takes you up an eroded road for about ¾ of a mile. Then you will have a little rock hop across the Plattekill Creek. We will then have some slight elevation gain but eventually descend to the point. The point is where we will have our lunch as we enjoy one of the most beautiful views in the Catskills along with several birds of prey riding the air currents. We will meet at the trailhead at 10AM. The group limit is 12 so please pre- register. No dogs please. For more information or to register, please contact Cory Smith at

Directions: From the Catskill Center in Arkville head east on SR 28. Take CR 214 north in Phoenicia and go about 12 miles, then turn east onto SR 23A. In .6 miles you will reach Bloomer Rd on your righ; it will become Platte Clove Rd. Continue for about 5 miles until you reach the trailhead P.A. on the left just past the Platte Clove Preserve.

From the east, take SR 32 from Saugerties or take SR 23A from Catskill to Palenville. Continue west on SR 23A to Clum Hill Rd. between Haines Falls and Tannersville. Turn south to Platte Clove Rd. and turn east to the trailhead P.A. on the left just past the Platte Clove Preserve.
