Ashokan Reservoir

The Catskill Mountain Railroad continues to renovate its track to give its customers a ride to the new Ashokan Rail Trail at West Hurley and to see the beautiful views of the Ashokan Reservoir from the Glenford Dike.

This has recently been made more difficult due to actions of the New York City DEP to restrict our access, but we will continue to fight hard to bring these views to our customers. For the latest developments on this important goal, please see correspondence below:
