This hike is in the vicinity of Esopus (Ulster County), which is itself south of Kingston on Rte 9W. The attractions are Louisa Pond, a viewpoint towards the Catskills and another towards the Hudson River, and a waterfall. We will hike about 4.5 miles, part of which is relatively level and some of which involves a descent and then an ascent on the return. The hilly piece takes us to the waterfall.
