The Inspiration Point and Boulder Rock Trail is a wonderful 4.4 mile loop in Catskill State Park.

This trail features a lake, waterfall, and many scenic viewpoints of the surrounding mountains and valleys. The Inspiration Point and Boulder Rock Trail is open for use year-round, but is best hiked from April to October. Dogs are allowed on this trail but must be kept on leash. We recommend stopping at the Kaaterskills Falls Overlook Platform at the end of your hike!
