The Shavertown Trail gives visiting families and novice hikers a unique opportunity in the Catskills and a spectacular view after only one moderately strenuous mile. You’ll break a sweat as you climb 520 feet in that first mile, but it is so worth it. Wander past a lovely pond, complete with pink and white water lilies in season, and enjoy the spectacular view of the Pepacton Reservoir.
The trailhead is on County Rt 1, about a tenth of a mile north of the intersection of Route 30 and County Rt 1 in Andes. Car parking is available at the parking lot by the bridge.
