Rifton & Esopus

Woodsy with rambling stone walls that mark former farmlands, there are hidden treasures to be found in the hamlet of Rifton and the neighboring town of Esopus.  There are home sites with stunning views of the Catskills, and riverfront properties to the east that look out onto the Hudson.  Winding roads will lead you to the Shaupeneak Ridge Park for hiking and recreation, or naturalist John Burroughs' home, Slabsides.
