New York Trails

New York, located in the northeastern U.S., is mostly dominated by mountain ranges within the Appalachian Mountains. Popular areas for hiking in New York include Adirondack State Park and the Catskill Mountains. The 2,184-mile-long Appalachian National Scenic Trail, generally known as the Appalachian Trail or simply the AT, passes through eastern New York.
