Windham Area Recreation Foundation

Dedicated to establishing the Windham region as a preeminent four season destination and bettering the lives of its residents and visitors through the enhancement of trail-based recreation opportunities.


The Windham Path is part of WARF's vision to connect Windham and its hamlets with the population and business centers of the town. The path will provide a means for residents and visitors to safely and easily travel by foot, bicycle or alternative means of transportation. Though Windham offers beautiful land, streams, and vistas, the town is not easily traveled without driving. The Windham Path hopes to change this by connecting the town in an environmentally friendly fashion that establishes the area as a destination for outdoor enthusiasts.  


The first phase of this eight part plan officially opened on Memorial Day 2013. It is a 1.5 mile long trail located just off Route 23. The trail provides the first public access to the beautiful Batavia Kill stream in Windham and contains five bridges. The path meanders through fields, woodlands and streams and provides fantastic views of the great northern Catskills. The trail has already proven popular with the community as a leisurely walking and bicycling path.
