Description

This trail branches off of the Long Path: Section 22. After about one mile, look on the right-hand side for the yellow-blazed Huckleberry Point Trail. Follow this narrow trail across 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.
