August 06, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

Sunset Rock is one of the finest views in all of the Catskill Park. Its open ledge area overlooks North and South Lakes and South Mountain (2,460 feet), with Kaaterskill High Peak (3,655 feet) and Roundtop Mountain (3,440 feet) hovering in the background to the south west. The ridge of North Mountain can be seen towards the northwest. The Hudson Valley can be seen.

 

Sunset Rock’s picturesque beauty made it a favorite location for both visitors to the famed Catskill Mountain House, once one of the most famous hotels in the world, and many of the early Hudson River School artists of the 19th century, including Thomas Cole and Jasper Cropsey. Today, it continues as one of the most popular hiking destinations in the Catskills.
