Headwaters Trails are located in the North Western Catskills, at the headwaters of the West Branch of the Delaware River. Conveniently located, we have numerous trailheads that are within the historic Village of Stamford and its revitalized Main Street.

There are approximately thirty miles of multi-use trails in the Bald Mountain Recreation Area that are open to the public due to the generous cooperation of several landowners. The trails offer a variety of experiences for all levels of walking, running, hiking, mountain biking, making the trails an all-season attraction. Equestrians, trail runners, cross-country skiers and snowshoers are all welcome!

Combined with the Catskill Scenic Trail, which is nearby and is 26-1/2 miles of hard-packed surface lying on top of the former rail bed of the Delaware & Ulster Railroad, the trails offer some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
