Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful hike. One of my favorites. A nice walk along the West Kill till you come to Diamond Notch Falls. Lots of picture taking here. Stopped for a rest at the "cave". Our next stop was Buck Ridge Lookout. One of the most spectacular views in the Catskills. 180% of mountain view's. Lots of picture taking here also. Bugs were real bad at the lookout so we stayed for a short time. Summited West Kill and returned the way we came. Will be returning here for a winter hike for sure.
