Welcome to our story walk, enjoy reading this month's book on your hike across the summit of Belleayre!

Story Walk

Kids in the Cats

In this unique writing contest, kids submit a story about the wildlife found in the Catskills.  We encourage all entries to be illustrated! Two lucky winners will have their stories published and displayed on the mountain as part of a “story walk trail” for everyone to see.

Submit your story to marketing@belleayre.com or drop it off at the mountain.  Please include your name, age, and contact information along with your submission.  Winners will be given scenic gondola tickets to see your story along the summit of Belleayre.

The Bears of Belleayre

Our first story is about the Bears of Belleayre – we follow Momma Bear from waking out of her winter sleep with Baby Bear.  Learn what her and her cub do during the spring, summer, and fall months to prepare them for their winter nap.  The full story is highlighted across the summit of Belleayre – take the Catskill Thunder Gondola to the top and enjoy your story.  While you are visiting us, check out our other hiking and interpretive trails at the mountain.
