CMC Annual Dinner Date and Details Announced - 10/13/13 - Learn More Here



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 Catskill Mountain Club is an all-volunteer grass-roots organization of outdoor enthusiasts dedicated to providing a wide range of non-motorized outdoor group activities throughout the Catskill Park and the larger Catskill Mountain region. We seek to provide a variety of opportunities that meet the interests and abilities of all age levels.

The CMC is committed to good stewardship of our environment through safe, sustainable and responsible activities, including building and maintaining trails on newly opened New York City watershed lands and on New York State park lands and offering informative events to help our members learn about the natural and human histories and resources of the Catskills. We also seek to promote the safe, sustainable and responsible enjoyment of our pristine streams and reservoirs, while protecting the surrounding environment.

We are devoted 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 region's 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.
