Bask in the summer air and glorious scenery of the beloved Hudson River. The Thomas Cole National Historic Site and Catskill Mountain Wild have teamed up to offer monthly hikes along the Hudson River School Art Trail. The guided, day-long adventure stops at several picturesque sites painted by famous 19th-century artists Thomas Cole and Jasper Cropsey. For this month's trek, a licensed Catskill Mountain Wild tour guide will take hikers through the forest to Sunset Rock and North Lake. It's a 6.5-mile hike at moderate difficulty. There will be opportunities to relax and sketch the views, as well as jump in the water if weather permits. This second hike of the season is July 27 from 9am to 4pm at Hudson River School Art Trail, located on Schutt Road in Haines Falls. (518) 943-7465;
