Platte Clove Road is closed in the winter (Nov-Apr).
From the parking area, take the Long Path: Section 22
by following the blue blazes. The trail is wide here, and with every step you gently climb. While you hike, you can hear the burbling brook on the right. After 1 mile, look on the right-hand side for the yellow-blazed Huckleberry Point Trail
. Follow this narrow trail over rolling terrain for 1.4 miles to the viewpoint. Here you'll get great views of the Hudson Valley to the east and Indian Head, Plattekill, and Twin Mountains to the south.
