Hunter, NY 19 Aug
Hunter Mountain Skyride is a six-passenger chairlift that transports visitors up to the summit of the 3,200 foot mountain. From the top there are magnificent views of the Northern Catskill Mountains, and on a clear day, you may be able to see as far as the Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts and the Green Mountains of Vermont. The Skyride runs 6 days a week in the summer, weather permitting (closed on Tuesdays). The Scenic ride takes approximately 11 minutes each way. Children must be 36” or taller to ride the chairlift.
There are well marked hiking trails on the mountain for those who enjoy hiking. Otherwise it is nice to walk around on the summit. There are picnic tables scattered around the summit, a great place for a picnic lunch.
Hunter Mountain also offers the New York Zipline Adventure Tours on the mountain. It is the longest, highest canopy tour in North America. There are over 5 miles of ziplines some nearly 600 feet high. The speed of the rider can reaches over 50 miles an hour. The zipline is operational during all 4 seasons. It can be enjoyed in the winter as well.
In the winter, Hunter Mountain is a very popular skiing and snow tubing spot.
