What You Should Know About The Catskill Mountains


31 Dec

You can find the Catskill Mountains in southeast New York State, between Albany and New York City. The wild region of rolling mountains, lush valleys, trickling streams, and secluded waterfalls has been treasured for its natural resources for centuries. In actuality, they are not really mountains but is a dissected plateau. Flowing waterways, sediment deposits and erosion on some parts of the lands created the towering mountain-like cliffs. Slide Mountain is its highest point boasting a height of 4,180 feet that is accessible to hikers via the Wittenberg-Cornell-Slide Trail. One of Catskills' High Peaks the Panther Mountain is said to be the site of a meteor landing that occurred 375 million years ago. For more info check this link here at newyorkrentalbyowner.com.
