Esopus, Ulster County
Hudson River Valley, New York State

From Scenic Hudson: "Esopus, Ulster County (790 acres)—Located on the slopes and top of Shaupeneak Ridge, part of the Marlboro Mountains, the preserve offers a cornucopia of treats for nature lovers — wildflower-filled grasslands, woods, a waterfall and pond, stunning rock formations and an abundance of wildlife, including beaver, deer, coyotes and turkeys. Just as impressive are the vistas, stretching to the Hudson River and, once the leaves have fallen, the Catskill Mountains. (Scenic Hudson has protected farmland at the base of Shaupeneak Ridge to ensure pastoral views from the preserve remain unspoiled.) This splendor, combined with the rugged terrain, has made Shaupeneak Ridge one of the region's prime mountain-biking destinations. The preserve also is the site of Scenic Hudson's annual Spring Sprint 5K Trail Race. At whatever speed you enjoy the trails, you'll be amply rewarded."

  Belleayre Mountain, a ski resort, is located off of State Route 28 in Highmount, NY, just hours from New York City. It was declared “Forever Wild” by the New York State Forest Preserve in 1885.

From Belleayre: "Early on, skiers would side-step or hike their way more than 3,000 feet to be the first to make tracks down un-named and woody trails. Since the very beginning of the American skiing experience, skiers gazed at the steep, rugged inclines of Belleayre Mountain and dreamed of refining them. In the 1940’s skiing enthusiasts pressured politicians to develop Belleayre as a safe and fun mountain for families and extreme skiers alike. In 1947 bills were introduced allowing New York State to create Belleayre Mountain. Construction began in 1949 and Belleayre began its premier winter season with five trails, an electrically powered rope tow, New York’s first chairlift, a summit lodge, a temporary base lodge with a cafeteria and dirt floors and parking to accommodate 300 people. It would become the center for winter sports in the region and an economic catalyst for surrounding communities. Belleayre Mountain Ski Area  website and more . . .

  Mohonk Golf Course, at Mohonk Mountain House Resort, is located at 1000 Mountain Rest Road, New Paltz, NY 12561 in Ulster County.

From Mohonk: "Mohonk’s 117-year-old course is a shot-maker’s paradise. Like other early courses in America designed at the turn of the 19th century, ours has a strong Scottish influence. It was first laid out by Mother Nature and Albert Smiley (Mohonk’s founder), along with two house guests, E.E. Schermerhorn and Mr. James Talcott. The original layout in 1897 was 1600 yards. In 1911, Mr. Robert Pryde, a Scotsman working in Yale, Connecticut, was the go-to man for golf courses. He lengthened the course and added Scottish charm. Pryde brought the length to 2350 yards. (The current length is 2707). Mr. Pryde, before immigrating to America, worked at St. Andrews. He was called upon to help design some of the first courses in the northeast. Mohonk’s golf course features undulating fairways that require you hit to flat landing areas we call bowls. The course protects itself with blind tee shots and uneven lies. Mohonk’s 19th century design is able to battle 21st century equipment—a testament to Mr. Pryde’s lasting influence. Public Golf Course - Mohonk Golf Course  website and more . . .

  "The Catskill Park is a mountainous region of public and private lands in Southeastern New York's Ulster, Greene, Delaware and Sullivan Counties. Evidence of the area's unique natural history can be seen in the impressive skyline formed by the ninety-eight peaks over 3,000 feet in elevation. Human activities such as logging, quarrying, tanning, trapping, and fishing have also shaped the Park's more recent history. Today, tourism and recreation play a prominent role in both supporting the region's economy and creating an awareness of the Catskills' ecological significance.

"The Catskill Forest Preserve is defined as the 287,500 acres of state land within the Catskill Park. These public lands are primarily forested, but also include meadows, lakes, rivers, wetlands, waterfalls, cliffs, and many species of fish, wildlife, and plant life. Afforded Constitutional protections that prevent the removal of timber, lands within New York's Forest Preserve provide an abundance of both recreational opportunity and plant and wildlife habitat. Depending on park-wide land classifications and specific unit management plans, there are a variety of opportunities for public enjoyment of the Forest Preserve, including hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, canoeing, and snowmobiling."
