    St. Patrick's Day in the Devil's Kitchen 3-16&17

    Well, me Boyos and Lassies, St. Patrick's weekend is right before the end o'winter and Russ and I are planning a trip into the Devil's Kitchen in the Catskills on March 16 and going out on the 17th.

    If anyone cares to join us let us know and we will provide directions. We hang above the Devils Kitchen Lean-to on the Devil's Path. (Ask Knotty, he had fun last year) We are looking forward to some snow, a warm fire and a touch of the 'creature.' Slainte!

    How to get to Devilís Kitchen Hang in Catskill Mountains.

    Get off Interstate 87 at Exit 20- At Saugerties

    Go thru toll booth to red light.

    In front of you should be a McDonalds

    Turn left onto Route 212 and go over Interstate 87

    Turn Right onto NY-32 N and pass the entrance to Interstate 87 South

    Continue onto NY 32 N and bear left New York 32A N to Palenville, NY

    At Palenville, NY you come to a light, bear left and continue onto New York 23

    Follow road out of town, up hill and past Katterskills Falls and thru the town of Haines Falls

    Go into Tanenrville, NY and stay on Main Street

    Proceed to traffic light in middle of town and turn left onto Co Rd 16

    Continue onto Co Rd 16 (Railroad and Spruce Streets) Continue down road.

    At sharp turn on road turn left staying onto Co Rd 16 (​Platte Clove Rd).

    Go down road passing houses and farms. Be sure to pass a ďBEAR CAUTIONĒ sign. Look

    for the trail head sign for Prediger Trail Head . This the trail head to the 1.9 mile hike into Devilís Kitchen.Turn right onto Prediger Rd

    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 Devilís 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. (Long Path)

    Russ is contacting the park rangers to see what the snow conditions are. Last year we had enough snow to make Microspikes necessary.

    Much as I'd love to come out for this, I can't get away this weekend.

    Have an awesome time, and hopefully I'll plan a get away in the barrens sometime in the coming month - I'll let you know.
