Catskill Scenic Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Catskill Mountains were formed by two moving forces: the glaciers of the Ice Age and the railroad. The first moved slowly over many millennia, the second required little more than a century, and both profoundly transformed the landscape. Glaciers carved a plateau into the mountains; trains turned the mountains, once accessible only to stalwart hunters, into a booming resort region. Surface: Cinder."
--Craig Della Penna & Tom Sexton, Rails To Trails: New York (The Globe Pequot Press).
