Hike to Echo Cliffs on Panther Mountain

New York Echo Cliffs Trailhead

Added by Rebecca Nichols

This popular hike in Piseco offers great views from the cliffs.

This gem of a hike is located in Piseco, NY near three state campgrounds.

After parking alongside the road, follow the trail as it climbs along the slope of a ravine. It's a steady climb but never overly steep. You will pass some interestingly shaped boulders along the way. There is a small, fun scramble just before the summit.

Views below are of Piseco Lake and surrounding mountains. This is a great beginner or family-friendly hike!

Short and very sweet

Awesome views for such a short hike, quite close to camping areas as well. Still gives a decent workout on the way up!

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!

Hike the North Point Loop

New York / Butter Hill Trailhead

There is three different trailheads to access the North Point Loop.  I chose the trailhead that would give me the longest hike.  That would be the Butter Hill parking area on Route 9W north.
