  Shaupeneak Ridge
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."

Boat launch, Boating, Fishing | Ulster Bristol Beach State Park

  Bristol Beach State Park, 165-acres in size, is located in Saugerties, NY 12477, Ulster County in the mid-Hudson Valley.

"In 1967, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation transferred Bristol Beach to PIPC. This former brickyard in the town of Saugerties, 12 miles north of Kingston, became a 53-acre park.

"In the 1990s, Bristol Beach and the adjacent parcels became highly valued for their commercial location: between US Route 9W and the west bank of the Hudson River. To keep this beautiful stretch of Hudson River waterfront pristine, PIPC expanded the park in the face of strong development pressure. With the cooperation of the former owner of the original parcel, Bristol Beach more than tripled in size to 165 acres. It remains undeveloped.

Fish Fisherman Anglers tips techniques secrets Bass Trout Walleye Crappie Catfish Salmon Steelhead | Ulster All About Fishing

  "A A Fishing" is dedicated to those kindred spirits who have an inborn desire for fishing and seek knowledge about the science and sport of fishing. Since the beginning, mankind has sought fish as a food source. To most, catching fish was simply a means to an end. To some, the pursuit was the awakening of an instinct that drew them to the water in search of the thrill of the "tap - tap" that only a true fisherman really understands.

  "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.

"For much of its 315-mile course, the Hudson River flows straight and broad. But at the Highlands, the Appalachian mountain chain intersects the river to create a fifteen mile stretch of rugged, mountainous landscape. This area contains the river's narrowest and deepest points, as well as its fastest currents. The Hudson River is an estuary, a mixture of salt and freshwater, and the saltwater line extends just north of Beacon. The River is tidal all the way up to the Troy Dam above Albany."

Long Path Trail 15 - 20: Hiking / Biking Southern Catskills

  Long Path Trail 15 - 20: Southern Catskills - Hiking and Mountain Biking the Long Path Trail

"These sections of the Long Path mark the beginning of the route through Catskill Park. The Catskill Park has spectacular scenery and considerable rugged terrain. It passes over Slide Mountain, the tallest in the Catskills. Nowhere does the Long Path go higher. Small villages nestled in the valleys provide a break from the traverses through dense forests carpeting most of the Catskill Mountains. Most of its route follows DEC trails maintained by the Trail Conference. The trails are generally marked with different colored plastic markers. These are usually the only trail identification except at major trail junctions. The LP aqua paint blaze is reserved for when the trail crosses private property and road sections. As the Long Path changes frequently from one DEC trail to another, hikers must watch carefully for turns and make sure that they are on the proper trail. Most trail DEC junctions have signs that give the trail names and the direction and distance to important points (Distances are not always accurate on these signs.). At many of these intersections, a plastic Long Path marker indicates the route of the Long Path. Camping is permitted on State land at elevations below 3,500 feet (this elevation is usually marked by signs along the trails), and at locations at least 150 feet away from trails and water. The Long Path also passes several DEC lean-tos and campgrounds." Long Path Trail 15 - 20:  Hiking / Biking Southern Catskills | Ulster  more . . .
