The Schoharie Valley offers many natural pleasures. It is renowned for its rich fertile soil and magnificent scenery. Mother Nature dresses splendidly for each occasion - glistening in stunning white for winter (perfect for cross country or down hill skiing).
In spring, she comes alive in splashes of bright colors, inviting you to bike or hike at nearby Vroman's Nose Mountain.
Summer follows in a blaze of glorious color and fragrant flowers, a wonderful time to visit the George Landis Arboretum, country fairs and farm stands.
Her Fall dress is breathtaking, an explosion of fiery reds, oranges and yellows. This is the time to visit the Pumpkin Patch or go horseback riding.
