The original Catskills settlement of Neversink, NY is currently sitting under several hundred feet of water. Neversink was established in 1798, but in 1941, the town was flooded to create a reservoir in order to supply a rapidly growing New York City with clean drinking water, destroying centuries-old buildings, cemeteries, and working farms in the process (and if that isn’t enough for you, the village of "Bittersweet" was also submerged).
The town was eventually moved a couple of miles away and now perches on the edge of the Neversink Reservoir. Neversink is known as a peaceful, semi-rural community, neighborly and surrounded by spectacular natural scenery. And don’t say that the townsfolk didn’t know an opportunity when they saw one -- Neversink is now famous for its fly-fishing, and the well-stocked man-made lake attracts thousands of anglers every year.
There’s no dog park in Neversink, but don’t let that dampen your spirits! Bicentennial Park is a lovely little spot for a leashed walk, and with so many fur-friendly hiking trails nearby, you and your pooch are going to be swimming in exercise options. You might need to drive a little to get the best for your buddy, but with a long enough leash, you two can sniff out a couple of pawesome dog parks in the wider area!
As the name might suggest, a trip to Neversink Unique Area is a truly special experience -- and a great op-paw-tunity for you and your best friend to get back to nature! This amazing preserve features a gorgeous gorge, two standing waterfalls, and thousands of square acres of majestic natural forest, and was designated one of the 75 "Last Great Places" throughout the United States, Latin America, and the Pacific by the Nature Conservancy. The trails run through tunnels of wild rhododendron, along waterways, and past stunning rock formations, and there’s one for every ability -- be sure to look up a map before you go!
Looking for somewhere to chow down with your pooch? Look no fur-ther than Livingston Manor! Just a twenty-minute drive from Neversink, this quaint hamlet is home to a couple of delightful doggy dining spots. The Arnold House serves up a seriously good scallop sandwich in a rustic atmosphere, and has a couple of seating options -- but it’s best to call ahead. If you’re just dropping in, seat yourself at one of Madison’s Main Street Restaurant’s outdoor tables, and be sure to try the barbecue pork! Or for a light bite, check out Main Street Farm, a market cafe that specializes in local produce and caters to canines outside.
If you and your pooch really want to "ruff" it, consider taking the trip to Willowemoc Wild Forest! Designated a "Forever Wild" forest, the trail system here is both extensive and well-marked. Fitter furry friends in search of a challenge are sure to find one on the snowmobile trail that leads up to Mongaup Pond, which features some rocky terrain and a few inclines, while the less athletic among us might wish to stick to the equally scenic, fern-lined Flynn Trail. There are several ponds studded throughout the preserve, and try and see how many salamanders you can spot!
Woodstock Dog Park may be a bit of a drive from Neversink, but make no bones about it -- once your pooch gets through those double gates, you’ll be glad you took the trip! The dog run is located on Yeary Road on the edge of Woodstock, where small town starts to give way to forest. There’s enough space in both the large and small dog areas for even the most hyperactive hounds to tire themselves out, and there’s even some doggy agility equipment for some extra canine cardio. Bags and water are provided, so just bring your pooch and prepare to play!
Since you’ve come all the way to Woodstock, it’d be a real faux paw not to stay awhile and soak up some good vibes! You’ll find small local businesses here selling everything from jewelry to candles to incense, and many of them allow doggos indoors as well as out -- plenty of shops have bowls of water outside for browsing canines, and many owners take their dogs inside with them. It should come as no surprise that there are several pup-friendly restaurants here, too -- try the patio at the Garden Cafe for vegetarian cuisine, or enjoy a sweet treat outside at the wonderfully named Peace, Love and Cupcakes.
