Trail to Kaaterskill Falls
Back in December, on my way back from attending a map printing press check up in New York, I took a quick detour through the Catskills to do some map field-checking that included a short hike to Kaaterskill Falls (not exactly sure of pronunciation…Cat-, Kate-, or Cot-, take your pick). With two drops totaling 260 feet, Kaaterskill Falls is one of highest falls in New York, and since it is a very short hike from a major road, this is one of the most popular places in the Catskills. However, on this cold December day, I was the only one out there, and it was a neat little trail that led straight to the base of the icy falls (the falls are slightly visible through the trees ahead in the photo).
