Kaaterskill Falls – The highest cascading waterfalls in New York State are just over 1 mile from Rosehaven. Thanks to the recent opening of the Kaaterskill Rail Trail, you can now walk/bike directly from Rosehaven to the top of the Falls via an old railroad bed. From the top, a beautiful view and subject of many Hudson School Painters, the “Victorian Graffiti” can keep you entertained for hours. A short, moderate hike from the bottom will take you to a classic view of the two-tier drop and “a romp in the pool” during the warmer weather.

Since the early 1800's, painters such as Thomas Cole, Asher Durand, Fredric Church and other members of the Hudson River School were, in a large part, responsible for enticing privileged city dwellers to the Catskills with their romantic depiction of a rugged American wilderness. Today, the beauty is captured by contemporary artists like Francis X. Driscoll whose local landscape photography featured on this site inspires both locals and visitors to venture the unbeaten path that leads to a spectacular waterfall, secluded glen, or panoramic vista. Visits can be made to the historic homes of Thomas Cole www.ThomasCole.org and Fredric Church www.olana.org.
The Catskill Mountain Foundation offers year round performances of classical music, dance, and theater, including Hollywood and Foreign/Indie films presented in a beautifully restored two screen movie theater in Hunter. 263-4908 www.catskillmtn.org
