The charming hamlet of Narrowsburg, NY is situated in the Town of Tusten along the Delaware River in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. Centered in the Upper Delaware River corridor, it is surrounded by rolling hills, forests, lakes and streams.
Once a thriving logging town, today the outdoor traditions continue though all seasons of the year. Canoers, kayakers and rafters flock to the area as soon as the season opens to float down the pristine waters of the Delaware, while hikers enjoy a network of trails in the area, including the Tusten Mountain Trail, which offer spectacular views of the the Delaware River. Anglers ply the waters for shad, trout, smallmouth bass and walleye and hunters target whitetail deer, black bear, turkey and other game. Motoring enthusiasts enjoy exploring the Route 97 Scenic Byway, for which Narrowsburg serves as the center point, and the many other wonderfully winding roads that characterize the rural western Sullivan Catskills.
