Woodland Valley State Park

Reviewed By Stodel - MASS

Nice, somewhat remote location, 20 minutes literally up the creek from Phoenicia. Many good campsites, many along the creek, and some reasonably private. Clean restrooms and showers. Very helpful staff who clearly take pride in their (public!) facility. A great takeoff/landing spot for a 20+ miles hike of the excellent Burroughs Loop.

The KaleidOscraper

Reviewed By CRUIZN-MASS - Attleboro, Massachusetts

Taking the $5 show inside the world's largest kaleidoscope is worth the visit. Beware if you have vertigo problems. The alternative of laying on the floor with the sound system vibrations can also affect sensitive people. Also, if you want the perfect coffee table curiosity for your home, consider buying one of the many different styles and types of kaleidoscopes available in the store.

Chichester Yoga

Chichester Yoga is the hidden gem of the Catskills. Tucked into the artists hamlet of Chichester, the center serves yoga enthusiasts from all over the world. Get a massage after class in total privacy and quiet from the best therapists in the area. You'll get so much more attention and care than at a spa as well as higher quality as our therapist have all been practicing for 5 years or more. Bring your friends and customize a retreat or come alone. We'll show you hiking trails, the swimming hole and help make your time at Chichester Yoga a blissed out, detoxifying, unwinding kind of day. It's so much more than a yoga studio.

I started taking yoga a few months ago where I live. I have a place near Chichester and wanted to practicing. I am so happy I found Chichester Yoga. The teacher was so good. She walked around and made sure you were in the pose correctly. She kept the flow of the class moving. For someone who is new to yoga and new to this studio I did not feel awkward at all. If anything I felt so welcomed!! The view is beautiful. You practice facing beautiful mountains.

New York Zipline Canopy Tours

Three attractions to choose from Mild to Wild including one of the Longest, Highest and Fastest Zipline Tours in North America, the Skyrider Tour. The Skyrider begins with 3,200ft dual ziplines at over 600ft above the canopy! This extreme activity is Not for Everyone! Our Mid-Mountain tour is slightly more mild, zipping from tree to tree within the canopy. This activity is fun for the whole family and a great place to take your first zipline adventure. Our zipline tours last approximately 3 hours and are lead by professionaly trained (and very entertaining) tour guides. Weight and hight restrictions apply, reservations are required.

Reviewed By Autumn G

This place is amazing! My husband and I paid for the SkyRider tour. I chickened out at the last minute and they were SOOOO nice and patient about it. My husband however did it and LOVED it! He said that it was the best zipline experience ever (and he has ziplined over a waterfall in Honduras)! The views are breathtaking and make for some great photo ops! The staff is soooo nice! Greg has the best jokes! They have the best customer service we have ever experienced! Even the car ride to Hunter Mtn is so nice. We pulled over and took several pictures! They definitely have a special thing going on there!

Catskill Mountains

Reviewed By robcurtross - New York City, New York

There are about 300 miles of hiking trails in the Catskill, many of them maintained by the Trail Conference.

The 356 mile Long Path, which runs from the George Washington Bridge in New York City to Thatcher State Park just southwest of Albany, passes through the Catskill Mountains region for approximately 100 miles between Wawarsing in the south and Windham in the north. The Long Path follows the main ridges of the Catskill Mountains passing over the Burroughs Range (Slide, Cornell and Wittenberg Mountains), along with the Devil's Path range, which has been called one of the most difficult hikes in the east. The Long Path also makes its way through wild and untouched wilderness areas and follows the eastern face of the Catskill Mountains, offering amazing views of the Hudson Valley and the Taconic, Bershire and Green Mountains beyond.

I have had the pleasure of hiking almost all of those 100 miles at various times, and this month was able to do a great hike over Wittenberg Mountain. Colors were magnificent.

Overlook Mountain

Located in the Catskill park region, Overlook Mountain beckons nature lovers with its trails and campgrounds.

Reviewed By LCNS10471 - Riverdale, New York

Our go to hike with our dog up Overlook Mountain. What would make it much better for novices and seniors would be some kind of places to sit along the long walk from the parking lot to the abandoned hotel, and also from the hotel to the fire tower at the top. Definitely need good shoes, either hiking shoes or something with support because of the surface. There are many stones and ruts on the way to the top. Once you get there, it's a perfect place to picnic and enjoy the views that span many, many miles.

Catskill Interpretive Center

The Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center is the Visitor Center for the Catskill Park and gateway to the Catskill region. Visit us to learn about the natural, recreational, cultural, agricultural and historical resources of the Catskills.

Reviewed By robcurtross - New York City, New York

he Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center is a partnership between the Catskill Center and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, with financial support by the New York City Department of Environmental Conservation and Catskill Watershed Corporation and staff and volunteer support from Catskill Mountainkeeper, Catskill Mountain Club, Catskill 3500 Club, and the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference.

It is the best single place to visit to learn about the natural, recreational, cultural, agricultural and historical resources of the Catskills. The Catskills cover a vast area; there are 700,000 acres in the Catskill Park alone.

This is an excellent place to stop, meet some really interesting people, and get a good grounding on what the Catskills have to offer. There is a new trail that the NYNJ Trail Conference is building all the way to the proposed spot for a new fire tower. The welcome center is filled with free booklets and pamphlets and the restrooms were spotless.

Slide Mountain

At 4,204 feet, Slide Mountain is the tallest peak in the Catskills, which makes for excellent hiking trails in the summer and skiing in the winter.

Reviewed By robcurtross - New York City, New York

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference publishes a Hike of the Week every week on its website, on Facebook and elsewhere. This hike to the top of the highest peak in the Catskills was very rewarding today, made a bit more interesting in view of the warnings about the approaching blizzard.

There would be no tomorrow as far as this hike was concerned.

The guide book guesses 4.5 hours to complete; it took me six but I loved to stop and admire the views. There were many on this glorious winter day, and the footing was just a tiny bit uncertain.

Hunter Mountain

Popular ski resort providing excellent runs and trails for downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowtubing and snowshoeing.

Reviewed By JohnandJaneS - Elmira, New York

When you're not there to ski consider hiking the trails. Its 2 miles and an 800 foot climb to the summit of the mountain where there's a fire tower with the best view in the Catskills. The ski lift runs weekends from Memorial Day until mid October and weekdays in the summer. Check the schedule online. On weekends from Memorial Day to Columbus Day the tower observation cab and the fire observers cabin are open to the public and volunteers are there to answer questions and point out the sights from the tower. The mountain has over 15 miles of beautiful marked trails for hiking. Great place to visit.....even if ski season is over.
