The town of Olive is located approximately 2 hours from NYC and is directly adjacent to Woodstock and 20 minutes from Kingston. Originally formed from parts of Marbletown, Hurley and Shandaken, today Olive is a small gem of the Catskill Mountains. Some of the most beautiful viewscapes within the Catskill region are found in Olive. The Esopus Creek flows through Olive and forms the Ashokan Reservoir which contributes to the NYC water supply. Situated at the base of the Catskill Mountains within the Catskill Park, Olive provides world class fishing, hunting and hiking opportunities.
