Nestled among the highest of the Catskill Mountains and the lush Hudson River Valley, Greene County offers 705,500-acres of wilderness with scenic views, year-round outdoor recreation, an abundance of attractions, diverse lodging, restaurants and unique cultural events.

Hailed as the cradle of America’s first artistic movement, the Great Northern Catskills is the birthplace of ideas and cultural currents that celebrate and honor the region's unique place in history. In fact, the early 19th century scenic views and striking sceneries inspired a new genre of American art called the Hudson River School, founded by landscape artist Thomas Cole. Explore museums, galleries and historic sites like Thomas Cole National Historic Site and the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse.

Greene County boasts five of the 10 highest Catskill Peaks in the Catskill State Park with hiking trails ideal for birding and wildlife viewing.
