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. Reservations are required for groups of 50 or more.  Please contact Alex Sines at 845.254.6129 email to for more information.
