Upstate Adventure Guides
Black Chasm Backpack (6/25-26)
A unique Adventure to a spectacular destination you'll only find with our partners at Upstate Adventure Guides! We’ll be exploring the deep, glacially carved chasms of Platte Clove, one of the largest gorges in the Catskills. As we bushwhack up the Clove we’ll visit over a dozen named waterfalls and cascades, each taller and more than the one before! Our backcountry camp will be filled with the sound of cascades and well tucked away in a secret side clove.
After awaking to birdsong and a hearty breakfast, we’ll hike up to the Devil’s Kitchen and Hell’s Hole, the tallest falls of them all, at the head of the Clove! Bonus--In the lower reaches of the valley, a keen eye may even spot one or two unfortunate cars that predate the installation of guard-rails on the road a thousand feet above!
