Decent hike. Difficulty is more advanced beginner than moderate. The views were nice and the trail is not very crowded.

Beautiful forest trail leads up to a gorgeous view. It was raining today and cloud cover was magical. Good for all hiking levels, small rock scrambles but not difficult at all. We had the trail to ourselves for the most part

This trail starts from the back of the DEC parking lot off Platte Clove Rd. The trail is pretty well groomed. A map at the beginning tells you where Huckleberry Point is but signs at junction simply say Trail. Initially follow blue blazes, then follow the yellow blazed. Parts of the trail is muddy, other parts rocky and goes up and down. Saw some neat mushrooms. In the end it paid off with a beautiful panoramic view.

BE WARNED: do not park along the road. We saw cops towing people's cars which was really unfortunate at the end of a beautiful hike. Felt really extreme considering there's only one small parking lot at the trailhead. Check signs when parking. Otherwise, a beautiful trail! Good climb, but not too hard. Took us about an hour to get to the top. Views are amazing.

One of my most favorite hikes in the Catskills. Easy trail to some amazing views. Arrive early enough and you'll have the summit all to yourself. It gets crowded real quick. I love the trail and views more then Giant Ledge!
