Scenic Drives
The Catskills are laced with roller-coaster hills and steep valleys, and every road is worth exploring. Here, some especially fun drives:

Rte. 28A to 42 from West Shokan, Ulster County, to Grahamsville, Sullivan County. Wind through deep woods and steep clefts in the Catskill mountain range.

Rte. 149 from Livingston Manor to Youngsville, Sullivan County. A bucolic vision of curving hills and hayfields.

Rte. 55 from Neversink to Liberty, Sullivan County. Neversink reservoir's dark blue water on one side, dense green valley on the other.

Rte. 23 from Acra to East Windham, Greene County. Race up the mountain switchbacks for a heart-stopping, five-state vista.

Rte. 23A from Tannersville to Palenville, Greene County. Hairpin turns make for a white-knuckle drive along Kaaterskill Clove.
