Catskill Hike: To Echo Lake, Overlook Mtn. from Platte Clove
Posted June 6th, 2014 by Georgette Weir
Saturday, July 19, 2014 (All day)
Joint with Mid-Hudson ADK
Strenuous, moderately fast 8.2 (round trip) miles. Beautiful in-and-out hike in the Indian Head Wilderness area; limited to 12 participants (DEC regulation).
From Long Path trailhead on Plattekill Clove Rd., we’ll hike to Echo Lake via Overlook Trail (then back). In addition to enjoying the lake, we’ll pass several streams, old quarry sites, two shelters, and a nice viewpoint. See work by Trail Conference volunteers.
Possible extension to Overlook Fire Tower on summit, depends on group. (Would add 3.6 miles round trip.)
