A rarity in the Catskills, a gorgeous view without a steep, all morning climb. The beginning section along a heavily eroded woods road isn't the best, but then you get on the yellow blazed Huckleberry Point trail and the hike becomes much nicer. Be sure to bring a camera and picnic lunch.

It's a really nice hike. The rocky road in is the worst part. The best is the stream and the views. The name says it all. Plenty of berries at the point. Keep an eye for the trail markers on the road in.

This is a relatively easy trail. The hike is pleasant, not overly hard on the body, and rewards you with a wonderful view. The view is impressive on its own but is improved a little during fall foliage season. Its a easy afternoon outing.

Hike summary needs to be updated. Follow the blue blaze trail from the parking lot on Platte Clove Road 3/4 mile. You'll see a sign on the right that says 'Trail'. Take this. It is still a blue blaze trail. After a bit you'll see the sign for Huckleberry Point. At this point the trail changes to yellow blazes. Also, at the end where it says descending toward Huckleberry Point keep in mind that you'll descend for more than a slight descent which you'll have to come back up later! The view was beautiful. Indian Head is very impressive from here. Wear waterproof shoes no matter what the season. It hasn't rained for weeks, but the woods road and many parts of the trail were very muddy.
