The Catskill Mountains or the Catskills are a large area in the southeastern portion of the U.S. state of New York. They are located approximately 100 miles north-northwest of New York City and 40 miles southwest of Albany, starting just west of the Hudson River. Many visitors, including owners of weekend or vacation homes in the region, seem to consider almost anything that is west of the Hudson and sufficiently rural, yet within a short drive of New York City, to be in the Catskills.

Esopus Creek is a 65.4-mile) tributary of the Hudson River, starting at Winnisook Lake on Slide Mountain. It flows across Ulster County to the Hudson River at Saugerties. The Esopus is noted for making an almost 270 degree turn around Panther Mountain, following a buried 6-mile impact crater rim. It is famous for tubing, a sport of rafting down a river in an inner tube. Many tubers begin their trip at Phoenicia, New York and head down the creek towards the Ashokan Reservoir at Olive, New York. The Ashokan Reservoir is part of the New York City water supply system, fishing is allowed under permit but swimming and most other recreational uses are forbidden. River canoeing and kayaking are popular. There are 42 kayakable rapids ranging from class I to V+.
