Grand Canyon House- What Were Those Ruins

  • St Francis De Sales Church Platte Clove Road Elka Park, NY, 12427 United States (map)

We've planned a hike in the area of Platte Clove's early 20th Century resort known as the Grand Canyon House to replace the previously scheduled Thacher Park Hike. Although the actual site of the Grand Canyon House is now on private property there are some nearby areas of beauty and interest including some (to us at least) recently discovered ruins on the south side of Platte Clove Road. The ruins are on the property of the Catskill Center's Platte Clove Preserve. While in the area we will visit Pomeroy (aka Platte Clove) Falls and walk to Paradise Point and perhaps to Huckleberry Point. This is an exploratory walk. We will avoid the areas of known danger in Platte Clove.  We will meet at St. Francis de Sales Church parking area in on the road to Platte Clove at 9:00 am on August 12.  Register by calling MTHS at (518) 589-6657 (leave name/phone number/# in party) or by email at mthsdirector@mths.org
