Plattekill Hiking Trails & Hikes

Echo Lake and Overlook Mountain from Plattekill Mountain

Hike from Platte Clove to Plattekill to Echo Lake

This hike is mostly very easy, with about 75% on well-marked trail. However, the bushwhack to the scenic lookout on the south side of Plattekill is extremely difficult, and presents some dangers. If you just want to peak-bag Plattekill, the herd path will get you most of the way there.
