Sam's Point Preserve - Ice Caves, Verkeerder Kill Falls, High Point - 8/14/14

Explore an ice cave, a waterfall, and enjoy spectacular views of the Shawangunks region and the Catskill mountains.

Seasonal Notes: The ice caves fill with ice and are closed until passable in spring or summer – but by late summer won’t have much or any ice in them. The falls can dwindle to a trickle in the summer.

With dwarf pines and ridge hiking there is significant sun exposure so prepare accordingly (plenty of water, sunscreen, hat) or chose a cooler time of the year.

Trail surface: Moderately rocky, minor scrambling on the High Point Trail.
