Maplecrest is a small hamlet located within the town of Windham in the northern Catskills. Noted for its countryside charm and mountain vistas, Maplecrest is scenically situated in a low lying valley at the base of the Blackhead Mountain Range, which contains the 3rd, 4th and 5th tallest mountains in the Catskills (Black Dome Mountain at 3,990 feet, Blackhead Mountain at 3,950 feet, and Thomas Cole Mountain at 3,950 feet). Maplecrest was originally called Big Hollow for its expansive valley environment. The name was changed to Maplecrest in 1921 in an effort to make the hamlet sound more attractive and thus attract additional tourism.
