There are many reasons to fall in love and stay in love with Andes, and at the top of this list is the beautiful natural environment and all the fun things one can do outside.
Hiking and walking are among the most popular outdoor activities in Andes and throughout the Catskills. There are many wonderful hiking trails in Andes and in the nearby areas, suitable for all levels of ability.
The Andes Rail Trail has a one mile (2 miles round trip) flat walk on an old railbed, with a natural grassy surface where the old ties can still be seen underfoot. After about a mile one can continue on the Bullet Hole Spur for a more strenuous hike through many different types of woodland environments. Both sections of the trail are lovely with wonderful views.
