NY: Catskills Region- Huckleberry Point

A moderate hike with a surprise series of waterfalls!

The distance was manageable at 5 total miles out and back to the point with clear markers along the way. Start on blue for about a mile and then switch to the yellow at a hard right until you could go no further.

As you start on the blue trail you can hear the rush of water and if you’re anything like me you just have to go off trail to investigate!

Well that experience brought me to not one, not two, but three distinct and different waterfalls with the third an enticing swimming hole.

I have also had the opportunity to learn a bit about the variety of mushrooms. I was most taken by one with a waterfall view which must be a respite for some little people somewhere.

Above and beyond the enchanted forest I admit there was the challenge of traversing the trails of mud and rocks. Ensure you have hiking boots for this adventure but it was otherwise quite manageable.

There was also a stream to navigate which had strategically placed rocks to assist you.

While I did feel the length and wondered what I might find at the end given how immersed into the forest I felt, I finally reached the point which did not disappoint.

Parking at the trailhead on Platt Cove road can get busy so go early or on weekdays.

I highly recommend Hotel Mountain Brook in nearby Tannersville if looking for a place to stay if you are into fire pits and s’mores overlooking the mountains!
