The hulking Burroughs Range looms just to the south.
Continuing past the first ledge and on my way to the next. The elevation between the four stops, range from 3160 feet to about 3185 feet.
There are a series of four ledges that offer incredible views, each as awe inspiring as the previous one.
Continuing past each ledge, there are still screened views nearly this entire section of trail.
Blue skies and snow capped peaks abound making this one of the Catskills most popular hiking destinations.
The silence of a winter day, broken only by a gust of wind. True serenity.
Walking along the ridge line of Giant Ledge.
A very, very steep and dangerous drop is only a few feet away from the trail.
Weighed down branches hanging over the trail.
The snow and trees really begin to crowd the trail after the fourth lookout.
Walking back in a winter wonderland.
Went a bit past the fourth ledge and turned around at about 1.9 miles. Hiked a total of 3.8 miles RT on a beautiful winter day in the Central Catskills.
