TOWN OF SHANDAKEN, NY DETAILS:



ABOUT:

The Town of Shandaken consists of the hamlets of Allaben, Big Indian, Bushnellsville, Chichester, Highmount, Mt. Pleasant, Mt. Tremper, Oliverea, Phoenicia, Pine Hill, Shandaken and Woodland Valley - www.shandaken.us/about-2/hamlets.

Located in the Northwest corner of Ulster County, 25 miles northwest of Kingston, Shandaken lies within the Catskill Park. Over two-thirds of its mountainous town lands are state owned and include Slide Mountain, the highest peak in the Catskill range (4,200 feet).

As in the past, tourists, summer and fulltime residents are drawn to Shandakens' variety of outdoor activities:  skiing, hiking, biking, hunting, horseback riding, trout fishing, tubing, canoeing and kayaking.

The town's name is of Indian origin and means "land of rapid waters." Originally settled around the Revolutionary War period, Shandaken was formally established in 1804 when it separated officially from Woodstock.
