Good day trip to Catskills from Stamford CT?

I live in CT but have never been to the Catskills - would like to do a day trip there this weekend with a friend from out of town. Looking for a cute town to walk around, views of the mountains, and maybe a short/easy hike. 2 hours or less drive (preferably under 90 min) from North Stamford CT.

Recommendations? Thanks!!

1. Re: Good day trip to Catskills from Stamford CT?

I am sure there will be lots of suggestions. But, I will start with these:

Woodstock, NY for the town. It's cute, but also a little edgy/hippy. Lots to look at. Overlook Mountain is a cool hike with great views at the top and the ruin of a hotel. It may be more of a hike than you are looking for (5 miles round trip), but worth it! A must shorter hike would be Kaaterskill Falls which is a little further north.

Closer to Stamford might be New Paltz, NY and the trails in the Mohonk Mountain Preserve. There is a day fee to use the Mohonk trails.

I think Woodstock is a lot more charming than New Paltz, and worth the extra drive. But I like to visit both places.
