The best scenic Catskills views? Often, they’re not the ones you'll find in any guidebook.
These easy kid-friendly Catskills hikes have so much to offer your family.
Having never camped out before, and certainly never in the backcountry, I researched for weeks, pulled the necessary kit together, and finally screwed up enough courage to solo camp overnight in the wilderness.
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.
