    Hell's kitchen 7/27-7/28

    The Jerzey Bears and myself are doing a short one nighter this weekend in the Hells Kitchen area of the Catskills. It's in the Tannersville, NY area and we'll be meeting at the Platte Cove trailhead to Hells kitchen around noonish. It's a short hike in, maybe 1 1/2 miles and pretty easy, this is more or less a fun get together hike and hang and any and all are welcome. We'll be finalizing this trip today and tomorrow so feel free to contact myself or the Bearz, they know this area far better than I do. Sunday we'll probably head into Tannersville for brunch/lunch. Hope to see you there.......

    “Stories set in the Culture in which Things Went Wrong tended to start with humans losing or forgetting or deliberately leaving behind their terminal. It was a conventional opening, the equivalent of straying off the path in the wild woods in one age, or a car breaking down at night on a lonely road in another.”

    no problem... the hang is on the Devils Path at the Devil's Kitchen Kitchen leanto. Go to the lean to and the hang trees are above it on a small ridge. You can take prediger rd or Platte Clove trailhead. Do a search on HF fir devils kitchen and get exact directions.

    for the trail head sign for Prediger Trail Head . This the trail head to the 1.9 mile hike

    At the end of the road there is a house and Prediger Rd turns slightly right and becomes Prediger Trail Head Road- Park the car. Sign in and follow the trail to the intersection and turn onto the RED TRAIL going left.

    If you want to take the short trail hike to Devil’s Kitchen then continue down CR 16 to where the road is closed off. There is a parking trail head on the left. Park there and follow road back to where it crosses over some small stream and there should be a sign and a blue trail markers.
