Hunter Mountain, New York is an outdoor-lover’s paradise. Located in the Catskill Mountains in the towns of Hunter and Lexington, it is the second-highest Catskills peak and offers amazing views that will leave the family breathless. Hunter Mountain engulfs visitors with clean air and surrounding natural beauty, and it is the perfect place to get away from the city for a bit. Families can get the full impact of their surroundings by staying in Hunter Mountain vacation rentals.
All four seasons are experienced in Hunter Mountain, making it a recreational playground for visitors year-round. When visiting, pack layers as the temperature varies based on your elevation. During the summer, temperatures typically hover in the 80s and rarely exceed 90 degrees F. At night, the temperature can drop 20 degrees when you’ll want to add a layer. The winter months bring colder temperatures in the 20s and 30s and inches of snow blanket the ground at this time of year.
Things to Do
The vast majority of activities and attractions in Hunter Mountain are of the outdoor variety. The terrain in the area is generally rugged and steep, but there are miles of trails that hikers of every level can enjoy during the warmer months. Some favorites include Colonel’s Chair with its breathtaking views, Becker Hollow Trail and Devil’s Path. If you want to see the sights without the hiking, take the Scenic Skyride to the summit of Hunter Mountain. The chairlift seats six and takes you through the treetops. On a clear day, you can see the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts. Also at the summit, don’t miss the hand-carved sculpture of Rip Van Winkle that sits there. Another popular activity in the area is fishing. Let Hunter Mountain Fly Fishing School take you out for the day and then patiently wait to catch your fish.
During the winter, Hunter Mountain activities revolve around the snow-covered slopes. Whether it’s skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing, visitors will enjoy the beauty and camaraderie found outdoors. At the summit, catch your breath and take in panoramic views of the area from the Hunter Mountain Fire Tower. Take a thrilling ride in an inner tube at Hunter Mountain, which has the largest snow tubing park in New York or get your adrenaline pumping at one of the three terrain parks on site.
