The Andes Rail Trail begins in the quaint town of Andes in the beautiful Catskill Mountains region of southeastern New York and follows a branch of the former Delaware and Northern Railroad. The trail begins at the town's old train depot, which serves as an unofficial trailhead and which is hoped to one day be restored. From the depot, one can travel a mile along the trail's natural and grassy surface, still spotting old railroad ties in some places. Outstanding views of mountains, woodlands, fields, a babbling stream, and the remnants of an old stone mill can be seen along the way.
