Needs a location


We’ll start at the Long Path trailhead on Plattekill Clove Road; our destination will be Echo Lake via the Overlook Trail. Then back. In addition to enjoying the lake, we will cross several streams where we can cool our feet, pass old quarry sites, inspect two shelters, enjoy one viewpoint, and more! Strenuous, moderately fast.

Beautiful in-and-out hike in the Indian Head Wilderness area of the Catskills. Limit: 12 participants (DEC regulation, plus, it’s a nice size for a group hike). Joint with NYNJTC.

Contact leaders Georgette Weir ( and Jean-Claude Fouere ( for more details and carpooling information.
