Welcome Aboard! Amazing Fall Foliage Train Rides in the Catskills.

With sweater weather slated to make its grand debut in the upcoming weeks, I find myself planning out my fall weekends with a host of autumn activities.  This year, like most, the Shawangunk and Catskill regions should be in peak foliage the third week in October and I can’t wait to take my family on the Catskill Mountain Railroad’s Fall Foliage Train Ride.

This one hour and twenty minute excursion aboard a restored 1922 Erie Lackawanna Coach provides a unique view of the Ulster County countryside with its open air flatcars; an experience that definitely cannot be matched nor recreated driving in your own car.  I mean really, who doesn’t want to feel the crisp mountain air kiss their cheeks as a breathtaking backdrop of autumn hues unfolds before them?   Still, for the less adventurous, interior cars are available and provide an equally incredible view.

The trip includes a stop at the Phoenicia Station, home of the Empire State Railway museum.  Here, passengers can explore railroading both past and present on the Catskill Mountain Railroad Branch Line of the Ulster and Delaware Railroad.
After your sightseeing adventure, kick back and enjoy the mountains from the area’s premier resort, Honor’s Haven Resort & Spa Offering countess recreational opportunities, Honor’s Haven takes advantage of its surroundings by offering guests sweeping and picturesque views from its golf course, hiking trails, and lakeside patio where you can enjoy their nightly fires and s’mores.
The Catskill Mountain Railroad’s Fall Foliage Train only operates from September 25th thru November 1st on Fridays, Weekends, and Columbus Day, so you’ll want to make your reservation before the last leaf falls.  To learn more about booking a fall foliage weekend at Honor’s Haven Resort & Spa call 877-969-4283 or email reservations@honorshaven.com.
