Finally! Finally a nice day! Unfortunately, it fell on a work day though, so I had to suffer through an entire shift staring out the window at the rare sunshine. As soon as I got off work, however, I headed down to the Catskills to poke around a little bit looking for some nice views. With only a couple of hours to play with, I decided to check out some ledges on the Hunter Mountain side of Stony Clove Notch. It would be a short but extremely steep bushwhack up to these ledges, but I was hoping the payoff would be worth it.
From the Notch Lake parking area, I followed the Devils Path west over Stony Clove Creek and up the steep, rocky trail. Elevation to start the hike was roughly 1950 feet.
Overlooking Stony Clove from a precarious ledge. This view was very sweet, but there was really no good footing, so I had to be very careful here.
