The Catskills: Trip Report 8/23/15

 Trailways Ticket PABT to Phoenicia: $76 roundtrip

Food, lodging, entertainment: $0 (gifts from my inlaws in honor of our 2nd Anniversary)

Weather: ideal

Recommended?: Absolutely! It’s around a three hour bus ride up from Port Authority. I smuggled our dog on the bus. If I were going without relatives to take advantage of, I would pick one of the many campgrounds in the region and camp out, hike into town for good brunch and sit around the campfire with marshmallows for entertainment.




 Hike: Shavertown loop. A new trail in the NYC watershed protected area, this hike was just strenuous enough to stretch the legs and work off a bit of the bread pudding from the Colonial Inn in Pine Hill. But then we had a big picnic a bench overlooking the peaceful reservoir. Down next to the reservoir boat launch there is a portapotty.
