You could drive NY-97 (starting at Port Jervis) along the Delaware River for some great views. Narrows burg and Callicoon are a couple of pleasant towns along the way).

In addition to NY-97 you could also travel NY-17/I-86. The area between Liberty to Deposit is absolutely stunning. I happened to travel at peak last year and was amazed at how beautiful the area was.

It's a beautiful time to be up here! In case you still need suggestions - Kaaterskill Falls is beautiful (though not as much water in it this time of year) - but it is quite a hike. The viewing platform is a much shorter and easy walk. Our favorite spot, though, is nearby North-South Lake. We run a B&B and even when guests say they don't want to hike, we recommend a stop at the Catskill Mtn House site, just a short walk from the nearest parking area. The views are spectacular, looking over the Hudson river and out across the mountains (it's said you can see five states' worth on a clear day!). A drive through the Kaaterskill Clove on 23A from Tannersville to Haines Falls is also beautiful, and allows glimpses of some smaller creeks and waterfalls without even leaving your car. (Just note that there is currently construction preventing cars from driving through to Palenville). Another great vista is Olana state historic site just across the river in Hudson, where you're actually looking back at the Catskill Mtns and at the Hudson from the opposite direction - and the historic house and grounds there are quite lovely to tour as well. Enjoy your weekend!
