Hike With Us - Catskills: Rochester Hollow
Sign up is required and space is limited. This hike begins at 9 A.M. This is a pleasant, easy hike on an old woods road that follows a babbling brook as it ascends the hollow to a monument to naturalist John Burroughs at 1.9 miles from the trailhead. Continue on to an old farmstead at 2.5 miles, and just beyond that, a lean-to shelter overlooking a sugar maple stand. In addition to the main trail, marked with blue markers, there are two alternative trails that leave and rejoin the main trail, allowing one to explore former farm fields surrounded by laid-up stone walls.
