One of America's preeminent landscape painters, Asher B. Durand was renowned for his many scenic views of the Hudson River Valley and the Catskills—the quintessential symbols of American wilderness for much of the nineteenth century.
Many of the locales represented by Durand more than a century ago can be visited today. This guide details a few of the sites depicted in the exhibition Kindred Spirits: Asher B. Durand and the American Landscape
and provides information on how to visit them. Visitors should consult the trail guides to gauge length and difficulty of walks.
