From the Hudson River along our eastern boundary to thousands of Forever Wild acres on our west, visitors to Thurman are immersed in natural beauty. In winter, choose between fireside snuggling with a good book as snow blankets the landscape or suiting up for outdoor fun. Ski at nearby Gore Mountain, or ride the 188 miles of trails groomed by Thurman Connection Snowmobile Club. You can also try sledding, snow-shoeing or cross-country skiing. In March, Thurman’s maple producers host two “Maple Weekends” with open sugarhouses, sugaring demonstrations and tours, including samples and sales of delectable maple goodies of all descriptions. Thurman’s annual Sugar Party, an all-you-can-eat buffet topped off with traditional “Jackwax.” You can also tour Nettle Meadow Goat Farm and Cheese Company anytime of year. Spring brings additional outdoor adventure–rafting, canoeing and kayaking from WildWaters Outdoor Center or Beaver Brook Outfitters, or, for those with their own craft, the Hudson River can be accessed from the public launch on Route 418. Enjoy a scenic train trip aboard the Upper Hudson River Railroad or go fishing through the summer. Hunters will revel in the abundance of deer, bear and turkey in the fall. Lodging is available – from enjoying the amenities at Glen Lodge, to camping at Glen-Hudson or Daggett Lake campsites. Discover your smile in Thurman - where nature is a way of life!
