This was my second hike to Newman’s Ledge which is located on the Escarpment Trail near the North-South Lake Campground. On a prior visit I could not see beyond 10 feet while at Newman’s Ledge as cloud cover/ fog was very low and dense that day. Newman’s Ledge looks over the Hudson Valley with Hudson River in sight. The vertical drop below Newman’s Ledge is estimated approximate to be 500 feet.

Cloud cover was very low on August 20, 2005 over the North-South Lake Campground located in the Catskills of New York. Visibility was zero at Newman’s Ledge as clouds covered the lookout point. I stayed for the sunset at North Lake and took a few nice photographs.
