Hiking Part of the Appalachian Trail at Shenandoah Mountain
Over 20 miles of the Appalachian Trail winds through Putnam County. If you do not have the time or energy to trek the entire length, try the beautiful, short section just south of where the AT crosses into Dutchess County. On the west side of the Taconic Parkway, a portion of the famous trail climbs to the top of Shenandoah Mountain.
