Bushwhack up West Stoppel Point, NE Catskills

Saturday, February 20, 2016

Five of us had a fine 8-mile hike up West Stoppel Point (3100 ft.), near Lake Capra & Colgate Lake in the NE Catskills. This was something new and interesting. The ridgeline summit of this mountain, which lies west of Stoppel Point on the Escarpment Trail, was a really nice walk because the woods are open and there are views of the Blackhead Range when the leaves are off the trees. After we came down, we found a beautiful frozen waterfall on the East Kill, which dumps into Lake Capra. Here’s a picture of it. There’s also a group “selfie” taken on the summit.
