Thorn Preserve is comprised of 60 beautiful acres near the Town of Woodstock, Ulster County. View the map below for detailed location information.
The Catskill Center’s Thorn Preserve boasts the most painted views of Overlook Mountain. Sweeping grassland habitat, riparian forest and ponds make this spot a profoundly relaxing and peaceful area. Mowed walking paths are easily accessible from John Joy Road. Thorn Preserve will remain an undeveloped landscape, which will allow us to offer nature-based education, sustainable agriculture, model stream management, and an ideal artists’ retreat.
