Windham Activities – best kept secrets in the Catskills
Windham Mountain Adventure Park- Winter
The Mountain Top Arboretum is a living museum of trees and shrubs created for the education and pleasure of the public. Its founders, the Ahrens family, designed and planted a seven acre mountain top area starting in 1977, to display the range of native and exotic trees and shrubs that successfully adapt to the rigorous climate at 2,400 feet elevation. Today we have twenty three acres of displays in three distinct areas: the West Meadow, the Woodland Walk, and the East Meadow. Self-guided tours are encouraged and guided tours are possible by calling the Executive Director. ( Email Tel: 518 589-3903)
