With a color palette and stunning shaded relief, backcountry navigation has never been easier.
National Geographic’s recreational map of Catskill Park is a two-sided, waterproof map designed to meet the needs of outdoor enthusiasts with unmatched durability and detail. This map was created in partnership with the Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) which provided trail information from its Forest Preserve Series of trail guides. Loaded with valuable information about recreating in the park, the map also includes a UTM and Latitude/Longitude grid, as well as selected waypoints and a scale bar for easy and accurate navigation.
Year-round activities abound in the park and the location of scenic viewpoints, boat launches and canoe carry downs, swimming areas, fishing access points, ski areas, and other points of interest are clearly marked as are park and forest boundaries. Campers will appreciate the attention paid to noting the variety of facilities available including primitive campsites, shelters, picnic areas, restrooms, parking, RV dump stations, and universal access areas for the handicapped. Whether driving the NY Scenic Byway, camping and hiking at Little Pond, or boating and fishing on the Ashokan Reservoir, these maps perform as highly functional travel tools that are as useful as they are remarkably crafted.
The front of the Catskill Park map details the western half of the park from its tip near the Bear Spring Mountain Wildlife Management Area and Pepacton Reservoir to the western edge of Sundown Wild Forest and the Beaver Kill Range in the Big Indian Wilderness. The eastern half of the park appears on the back of the map and also includes Schoharie Reservoir and Ashland Pinnacle State Forest to the north stretching south to Rondout Reservoir and Vernooy Kill State Forest.
