The Catskill Mountains are located in southeast New York, west of the Hudson River Valley. Much of the Catskills comprise Catskill Park, a forest preserve, where people live alongside animals such as bears and bobcats. Immortalized in paintings from the Hudson River School, you can see many of Catskill views for yourself along the Art Trail. The Catskills are also known for their skiing opportunities, at resorts like Hunter Mountain and Belleayre. The Great Northern Catskills offer family-friendly activities in the mountains and beyond. Experience the beauty of the Catskills 600 feet above the ground, going 50 miles an hour, tethered to a zipline on the fastest, longest, highest zipline canopy tour in North America.
