From NY 87 exit at Saugerties/Woodstock, follow rt 32, to 23A. After driving through Catskill Park follow signs for North-South Lake. Once @ N-S lake start from the Artist Rock Trail Head and follow the Escarpment trail for about 1.5 miles.
After Sunrise at artist rock, I was not expecting to turn the corner and see fall colors in full swing across the Catskills' "Moutaintop Region." This picture shows North-South Lake in the foreground and the ridgeline in the background is made of the moutnains, Indianhead, Twin, Sugarloaf and Plateau
