Southbound on Taconic State Parkway

 Taconic Parkway

New York’s answer to the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Taconic State Parkway is the longest parkway in the state and arguably the most scenic. Running 104 miles from Chatham, NY to Kensico Dam, the parkway is recognized on the National Register of Historic Places for its role in developing American roadways.

The entire drive can be covered one way in 2-3 hours, but do leave plenty of time for scenic detours. There’s a great view of the Catskill Mountains at the pull offs on both sides of the highway in Columbia County and several beautiful recreational areas, including Lake Taghkanic and Franklin D. Roosevelt State Parks. Not to mention a number of delightful little New York towns and attractions not far off the highway.
