If visiting in the warmer months, you'll have plenty of opportunities for adventure, such as hiking, biking and fishing.
Nearby Upper Esopus Creek is cold most of the year, and so supports one of the largest wild trout populations in the Catskills Mountains. Brook trout, brown trout and rainbow trout can all be caught in the "wild" section of the creek from Winisook Lake downstream to Lost Clove Road in Big Indian.
Small spinners, spoons and jerk baits are all good ways to catch wild rainbow trout, which range from 8-12". The occasional catch can even reach trophy sizes of 20"+ during late fall and early spring. Book Haven Near the Hudson now: bit.ly/HudsonHaven
