This area is very popular and has a lot of carriageways (very wide easy paths). We kept the dogs on leash on the carriageways, as there were many people on them. Also, the carriageways are open to mountain bikers at least during some of the year. We saw very few people on the hiking trails once we got off the carriageways. But, I assume in the summer there would be many people on the hiking trails as well.

The dogs found this stream a lot of fun. It was such a pretty area too.

Beautiful section of the trail with stunted pines and views of the Catskills

Castle Point - which has incredible views
