Hiking in New York

Experience New York the way explorers have for centuries.

Explore some of America's greatest trails including the Appalachian Trail, winding through the beautiful Hudson Valley, and the North Country National Scenic Trail, with gorgeous overlooks. For hikes at every level, head north where lush valleys, sparkling lakes, and towering granite peaks thread through Adirondack Park. Letchworth State Park offers 66 miles of hiking trails to explore the area often called "the Grand Canyon of the East."

Tackle the Catskill Scenic Trail or view cascading waterfalls at Taughannock Falls State Park. Top-ranked hiking trails include Long Island's Mashomack Preserve on Shelter Island, the 6,000-acre Mohonk Preserve, and New York's highest peak, 5,344-foot Mount Marcy.

Experience Watkins Glen State Park and its 200-foot cliffs, 19 waterfalls, and winding Gorge Trail. Hikers love Allegany State Park for its enchanted mountains. John Boyd Thacher State Park near Albany unveils endless vistas of the Hudson and Mohawk Valleys, Adirondacks, and beyond. 

Just remember to keep six feet apart from others not in your household and bring a mask or face covering to wear when it’s not possible to maintain social distancing, and call ahead or check websites and social media to make sure attractions are open and available. Before heading out, please visit the Department of Environmental Conservation website for information about how to "Play safe, play smart, play local" and how to follow Leave No Trace principles to help eliminate litter at New York's favorite trails.
