Welcome to Phoenicia & Mt Tremper
This quirky pair of hamlets (just down the highway from one another) are the perfect jumping off point to explore the Catskills. Phoenecia is the bigger of the two, while Mt Tremper boasts a few impressive hotels. Outdoor activities are easily arranged and include hiking, cycling, floating down the creek on an inner tube or swimming in mountain pools in summer and skiing at nearby Belleayre Mountain in winter. Fall is prime time to visit and also the best season for a jaunt in an open-air carriage on the Delaware & Ulster Railroad between nearby Arkville and Roxbury.
