Welcome to the Catskill Mountain Club!
The CMC is an association of outdoors-people who love to hike, camp, fish, hunt, canoe, kayak, bike, climb and otherwise enjoy nature and non-motorized outdoor recreational pursuits in the Catskill Mountains. The CMC was founded back in 2004, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Catskill Park.
The CMC in an enthusiastic, all-volunteer grass-roots organization dedicated to providing a wide range of outdoor (non-motorized) group activities throughout the Catskill Park and region in New York State to meet the interests and abilities of all age levels.
Our commitment also is to build and maintain trails, including newly opened lands belonging to New York City. And we seek to maximize safe enjoyment of streams and reservoirs while protecting the surrounding environment.
We are devoting to improving regional and local economies by promoting and supporting improved public outdoor recreational opportunities and facilities while still preserving natural resources.
CMC supports any efforts to bring activities of the regionís various outdoor groups to the attention of as many people as possible, striving to make our website a conduit for these activities and encouraging other groups to do the same.
At the same time, we strive to encourage CMC participants to suggest and lead activities for their enjoyment and to help us grow.
Our interest is in the entire Catskill region, not just the Catskill Park or the high peaks - we encourage people to explore diverse areas of the Catskill Park and Forest Preserve, as well as other public lands in the greater Catskill region, such as our State Forests, Wildlife Management Areas, Special Use Areas, Unique Areas, and NY City Watershed Lands.
