Hunter (Greene County)
Why we love it
Are you a thrill-seeker? Then the longest, fastest and highest zipline in North America (and second-longest in the world) belongs on your bucket list. The three-hour adventure begins with a chairlift or off-road ride to Hunter’s summit followed by safety training. Then you’re hooked up and all hell breaks loose — five Skyrider ziplines spanning 4.6 miles (the longest over half a mile!) will rocket you down the mountain at speeds reaching 50 mph. Along the way, enjoy unforgettable views of the Catskills — if you can manage to keep your eyes open.
The Mid Mountain Tour — which features six ziplines (the longest 650 feet), four suspension bridges and nine tree platforms — offers a more family friendly but still plenty exciting alternative. There are height and weight restrictions for both tours.
