Arkville lies in the Catskill Mountains, and is a small place almost entirely defined by the rolling, green hills that surround it. It is a place that many people visit when they are looking for some time to escape from busy city life, and where they can unwind in the heart of nature after a long day of exploring the wilderness. Not only this, but the Belleayre Ski Center lies not far from the hamlet, which offers snowboarding and skiing opportunities in winter. Peaceful hiking trails can be found at Lazy Crazy Acres Farm, which lights up when sunset rolls around, and Dry Brook ridge has trails that run along a ravine. You could even venture up to Halcott Mountain to catch glowing views in the fall months as you hike.
