The Neversink River flows through the community of Rock Hill and into the NYSDEC Neversink Unique Area.
There are a number of public access and recreational opportunities on the Neversink River and within the Neversink Unique Area, such as hiking, kayaking, fishing or tubing. And, when you are done with your fun filled day on the river or hiking in the Neversink Unique Area, stop by one of our great businesses for a bite to eat or make a weekend of it and spend the night!
The Neversink Unique Area is a large tract of forested land. Stay on the trails so that you do not get lost. When kayaking or tubing on the Neversink River, be aware that you do not want to travel the Neversink River into the Neversink Unique Area and you must exit the river by Bridgeville Road, before Holiday Mountain Ski and Fun Park. The river can also be very low during the summer months.
Neversink River Fishing Access
You can access the Neversink River for fishing at the NYSDEC Edwards Road Location. For tubing or kayaking you can also access the river in the adjoining Town of Fallsburg, at the Old Deniston Hill Bridge (which is also a great spot for fishing). For a map and directions click here.
The Neversink Unique Area
The Neversink River Unique Area, also called the Neversink Gorge, is 4,881 acres of beautiful land. It is a great place for hiking and fishing, but camping is not allowed. If you are looking for easy access to the river, this access is not recommended. You will have to hike down to reach the river, but once there it is absolutely worth it! There are a number of access points and trails. However, only the Katrina Falls Rd Access and the Cold Spring Road Access points have maintained parking and maintained trails. The other access points are difficult to get to. There currently is no way to hike from the Katrina Falls Rd Access trails to the Cold Spring Rd Access Trails (and vice versa). The Katrina Falls Road Access is located in Rock Hill.
Wolf Brook Multiple Use Area
The Wolf Brook Multiple Use Area is 585 acres and adjacent to the Neversink Unique Area. Hiking trails are available, and fishing and camping are permitted. Tributaries from the WBMU flow into the Neversink River. Check out the Sullivan County Trailkeeper website for more information and directions.
