From the publisher: This guide selects 40 hikes from the best among the Catskills' famous peaks above 3,500 feet, as well as more moderate trails to backcountry waterfalls, easier trails to some of the area's most spectacular viewpoints, and rail trails that provide access to fragrant woodlands and unusual geological wonders.

In a region largely abandoned by tourists and just now seeing renewed interest from visitors, Hiking the Catskills provides the guidance readers need to plan exciting trips into the mountains.

This book leads readers to the ridges, notches and cloves that inspired a uniquely American landscape painting style, the vistas that drew thousands of vacationers here throughout the twentieth century, and the peaks that challenge the most rugged explorers. It's time to rediscover the Catskills, one of New York's most fascinating natural areas.
