There is one thing you have to try before the leaves are gone and that is Mountain Biking at Windham.

Before the entire world discovers how cool the Catskill Mountains are, try the Mountain Bike Park at Windam. I have skied here hundreds of times and I do love when it's snow covered, but you can bike on their well groomed trails and enjoy the incredible views from the top of the mountain.


According to the Windham Mountain website, everything you need to enjoy a day on the trails is available right at the base lodge. You can rent bikes, helmets and all the other safety gear, plus lessons are offered if you're a beginner.

Outstanding natural Catskill Mountain terrain has been expertly developed by world renowned trail designers – Gravity Logic, giving riders of all levels something to get stoked about. Miles of trails are serviced by a high speed quad lift, you’ll never pedal uphill.

I was just hiking in the Catskills last weekend and the foliage should be close to peak levels this weekend. It's really beautiful up there and this would be a perfect weekend to take a ride on the trails at the Windham Mountain Bike Park.

This place is great for families looking for a leisurely ride or hard core mountain bikers. Windham will be hosting World Cup Mountain Biking events in 2019, so you know they can offer an adrenaline rush, if you have the skills to handle it.

The mountains will be busy this weekend with biking at Windham and Octoberfest nearby at Hunter. Plus hiking and people just coming up to check out the foliage. Good time to enjoy these hills before they are covered with snow.
