recriders mtn cropA lack of things to do is typically not an issue at Plattekill Mountain in Roxbury, NY with the mountain now open for summertime activities.  Offering lift-served mountain biking, hiking and scenic chairlift rides and bike rentals every weekend. 

Want a great Catskill Mountain Biking experience?  Guests can choose from a variety of packages with all you’ll need to for a day out on the trails (bike rentals, gear, ticket and guided tour) and they also offer a “Rise & Shine Package” which offers it all in a short 2-hour session both Saturday and Sunday mornings. 

However, that’s not all you’ll find at Plattekill this summer.  Their “Music on the Mountain” Free Concert Series is back for a third season and it has been expanded for 2016.   The series will feature four concerts this summer taking place the first Saturday of every month. Starting June 4th a local favorite, Blues Maneuver Band, will kick off the series with rhythm, blues and funk.   Each month a different genre will be offered along with different dinner specials on concert nights.   All concerts are free to the public and chairlift rides will also be open during those evenings until 7pm. 

Also new to the mix this year, the mountain will featuring the first ever “NY Outdoor Expo '16” on July 9th with the opportunity to feed your passion for the great outdoors.  This event will feature hands on activities from guided hikes and kayaking to fly fishing and s’mores roasting.  An exclusive Guided Mountain Overnight Camping Package will also be offered for enthusiasts.  Activities also feature scheduled demonstrations, exhibits, vendors and more.
