The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Capture Nature in the Catskills


4. Insider’s Tip

Borrow skates in Margaretville.  

The town of Margaretville maintains a daytime ice-skating rink (behind the CVS, on State Highway 28); at about 7,200 square feet, it’s comparable to the Rink at Rockefeller Center. BYO skates, or borrow a pair from Mike and Becky Porter’s back porch (133 Orchard St., in Margaretville; no appointment necessary). Donations cover rink maintenance.
