In 1826 Thomas Cole painted a scene that was named “From the Top of Kaaterskill Falls”. These photographs are a spirit of his 1826 painting.
‘Hike #3: Circuit of South Mountain’ is from the ‘Catskill Mountain House Trail Guide’ by Robert Gildersleeve.
From the blue blazed trail we then proceeded on a yellow marked trail. This trail took us to Sunset Rock and Inspiration Point.
The Hotel Kaaterskill is great moderate hike and the start of the trail is located just outside the entrance of the North South Lake Campgrounds.
