The Area

The Town of Woodstock, long famous as an artists’ colony, is nestled in a pleasant valley at the base of Overlook Mountain. The town offers many dining options, galleries, crafts, live music, shopping, a museum, theater, and many other attractions.

Participants may bring tents, sleeping bags, and food, and there will be camping allowed on the state lands which adjoin the church. Please note, however, that no fires are permitted on site, and fires may only be built on state land in specifically designated areas. We know that all of you will carry out what you carry in.

Some attendees will wish to participate in portions of the event, and then retire to less spartan surroundings; there are many options ranging from luxurious to simple in Woodstock, and in the nearby towns of Bearsville, Phoenicia, Saugerties, Catskill, Tannersville, Mount Tremper, Kingston, and West Hurley. These adjacent towns also have many attractions for both singles and families, ranging from tubing or world-class fly fishing on the Esopus, hiking one or more of the area’s many trails, to the deluxe spa treatment at the Emerson Resort.

Excellent detailed maps of the area, with hiking trails, etc., are available from The New York/New Jersey Trail Conference.

How to get here:
Adirondack/Pine Hill/New York Trailways has very reliable and comfortable bus service from New York City, with a low round-trip fare of $53.00; they have several buses daily. They also offer service from many other points in New York State. We urge you to use this service if possible.

If you must bring your car, take the New York State Thruway to exit 19 and proceed west on SR 28 towards West Hurley. Turn right at the junction of SR 375 and continue to the junction of Mill Hill Road/SR 212. Turn left onto 212, and continue approximately one-half mile to the center of town. Turn right onto Rock City Road; the town parking lot is on the right.
