Poet’s Ledge Trail in the Catskills
The Poet’s Ledge Trail in the Kaaterskill Wild Forest section of the Catskills is certainly not a very long trail by Catskill standards at only 0.5 mile long. But it’s a great little section of trail! After a climb of more than 1,700 feet along the Long Path, the Poet’s Ledge Trail branches off and descends slightly through some neat forest areas like the portion shown above. Before you know it, you reach the end of the trail on a rocky ledge with wide-open views of the surrounding mountains and the Kaaterskill Clove. It was a great place to relax for a bit and refuel with some lunch. I’ll be sure to post some photos from Poet’s Ledge soon!
