Echo Lake is a 7.4 mile trail through Kaaterskill Wild Forest.

Easily accessible from Hunter, New York, Echo Lake is the perfect place for hiking, dog walking, fishing, and camping. In the spring, wildflowers are abundant and in the call, the trees offer brightly colored leaves. This trail remains open for use year round, but bring crampons or snowshoes in the winter!
