Inspiration Point

Inspiration Point, the Catskills (5/4/2015)
We hiked along this splendid escarpment in the Catskills back in October, 2007 when we were following Hike #1 ("Inspiration Point and Hudson River Valley Lookout") from the book Catskill Day Hikes For All Seasons (November 2002). Today we repeated the hike but also added a small loop in the area where the Kaaterskill Hotel used to be. There we visited a small pond by the remains of a large cistern where we saw salamanders and catfish. This was the third of seven hikes we did in the Catskills during a five-day stay in Woodstock, New York. Total distance hiked was 5.4 miles in 3 hours and 45 minutes.
