Explore the Catskills This Fall

New trails, new views, and new experiences await this fall in the Catskills.

Just a few hours’ drive or train ride north of NYC, the Catskills offer a fall destination that promises apple picking and cider tasting, pumpkin patches and corn mazes, leaf-peeping and can’t-miss events. This fall, head to the Catskills for an incredible getaway that offers everything you love about autumn.

If capturing colorful fall foliage is on your bucket list, the Catskill Mountains provide a vibrant palette for painting, photography, or simple, unplugged enjoyment. Find Catskill trails that lead to stunning waterfalls or trailside beer gardens, meander through arboretums or book a table at one of our famed Catskill restaurants and savor the bounty of the harvest.

If spending as much time outside as you can before the snow flies is your plan for fall, head to the nearest trailhead to explore the best hiking in the Catskills. The temperature is dropping, the leaves are changing, and it’s time to escape to the Catskills for an autumn retreat.
