20 Great Catskills Hikes Get Tourist Spotlight in Margaretville

Kiosk for Catskill tourists

Jeff Senterman, Trail Conference Catskill Region Program Coordinator, celebrates installation of a map kiosk that promotes local tourism in the Catskills. The Trail Conference worked with partners to produce the map and hike recommendations.

The Central Catskills Chamber of Commerce spent the winter working with the Trail Conference and other regional partners in the Central Catskills to develop a new kiosk for the center of Margaretville that showcases recreational opportunities close to the village.  Located in a small park on Main Street, this kiosk provides information on hiking, boating and local history.

The Trail Conference worked with the Chamber on the hiking panel to create a map of the Catskills that showcases the list of the top twenty hikes that were developed by the Catskill Mountain Club and the Trail Conference.

The kiosk includes this new map, along with information about the work that the Trail Conference does in the Catskills and a QR code that will send smartphone users directly to our PDFmaps app to access and download our Catskill Trails maps onto their smartphones.  The Trail Conference’s Senior Program Coordinator, Jeff Senterman, joined the Catskill Mountain Club and the Central Catskills Chamber of Commerce on Monday, May 12th to help celebrate the installation of this kiosk.
