Zelený Les is a short 2-mile distance from the western terminus of the Catskill Scenic Trail, a multi-use rail trail along the former Ulster and Delaware Railroad right-of-way. It runs approximately 19 miles from Bloomville to Grand Gorge, following the west branch of the Delaware River along its western portion. The eastern part of the trail has recently been extended 7 miles south of Grand Gorge to the town of Roxbury. The flat grade of the trail makes it popular for people of all ages to travel by foot, bike, ski, or horseback along miles of breathtaking vistas.
