Hunter, NY

Nestled among the region’s highest peaks, it's home to some of the top attractions in the Great Northern Catskills.

Hunter is Greene County’s true mountain town. Nestled among the region’s highest peaks, it is also home to some of the top attractions in the Great Northern Catskills. Within the Town of Hunter, you will find two villages – Hunter and Tannersville. Since the area was first settled in the early 1800’-s, tourism has been the lifeblood of the community. Whereas the rocky, mountainous terrain made large farming difficult, the stunning scenery attracted artists, poets, writers, and wealthy travelers who wished to escape city life and draw inspiration from nature.
