Now that winter has started to settle into the Catskill Mountains, it's always good to consider the special opportunities and challenges of hiking and recreating in the Winter. The Catskill Center offers some great winter hiking tips on their website.
The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, together with Unboring Exploring has produced a fun video about how to be properly prepared for winter hikes and activities!
