North-South Lake Park: Catskill Escarpment Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"There’s no better way to take in the vibrant Catskill Mountains scenery than on this trail, where you will see the area from many angles. If you’ve heard about the Catskills but never visited, or if you’ve wondered about the best places to see the most sweeping views of the Catskill Mountains in their full glory— especially in fall—then this solid hiking experience is for you.

Make a day of it, and explore all the side trails that lead to slices of the region’s history in hospitality and tourism, and from which you can see the views that inspired the first truly American style and philosophy of fine art: the Hudson River School of landscape painting."
