Catskill Hike: To Echo Lake, Overlook Mtn. from Platte Clove

Saturday, July 19, 2014 (All day)


Echo Lake on Overlook Mountain

Joint with Mid-Hudson ADK

Leaders: Georgette Weir, [email protected], and Jean-Claude Fouere, [email protected]; 845-462-0142.

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.)
