Overview

The Catskill Thunder Opens for the Summer on June 24

Take the Catskill Thunder Gondola to the summit of Belleayre Mountain for breathtaking views of the Catskill Forest Preserve.

Once you’ve reached the top, you can take a walk along the summit, have a picnic lunch, or just enjoy the peace and quiet. When you’re ready, you can either hike or take the gondola back down. Either way, bring your camera! You are sure to get some beautiful shots of the mountains and the wildlife.
