Why September and October Are Great Months to Visit Catskills

For Catskills visitors, there are always fun and healthy things to do up here north of New York City, especially in the fall season. In September and October, as the heat of summer wears off, the weather is comfortable and yet warm enough to enjoy the outdoors and the gorgeous fall foliage in the Catskills.

Changing leaves turn the Catskill Mountains region into a multi-color masterpiece art. Leaf-peeping is one of fall's most popular pastimes. There is no better way to take in the foliage than adventuring outside. Choose from hiking in the Catskill Mountains, hitting the greens with a round of golf, or spending mild fall days and cool autumn nights staying in our Catskills-style wood cabins and hanging out by wood burning fireplaces or outdoor fire-pits. If you want to add a bit more adrenaline to your fall experience, speed through the colorful forests on a mountain bike or get above the treetops on a Scenic Skyride or Zipline Adventure Tour at Hunter Mountain.
