Description


Welcome to a state-of-the-art hiking guide to the first recreational mountain trails in the United States. Newly drawn maps, GPS locations, and precise modern trail descriptions guide the reader to a rediscovery of the lost and forgotten sites of the golden age of the Catskill Mountains. Embellished with nineteenth-century illustrations, maps, and descriptions, this book guides the reader along the historic footpaths that inspired writers and poets like James Fenimore Cooper and William Cullen Bryant, all of the major Hudson River School painters including Thomas Cole and Frederic Church, and America's pioneer landscape designers Andrew Jackson Downing, Calvert Vaux, and Frederic Law Olmsted. Includes reprintings from two classic 19th-century guidebooks, Van Loan's Catskill Mountain Guide and Rusk's rare and out-of-print An Illustrated Guide to the Catskill Mountains.
