Driving is the simplest way to get to Andes. But give yourself plenty of time depending on when you leave. Traffic getting out of the boroughs can add an hour or more to the travel time. No matter what the map says estimate a 4 hour trip. Leaving on Friday can make it even longer if there is an accident or something. ALSO: No good has ever come from going through lower Manhattan.

That said, once you get about an hour away from Andes the drive gets very “scenic”!

Sometimes following GPS will take you down some very tiny, rough roads, so we recommend going one of these ways from the city:

I-87 to NY-28 VIA KINGSTON: This route has more food options and more traffic. It’s also the simplest. Get yourself to I-87 North. Take I-87 all the way to NY-28/Kingston exit. Head west on NY-28 all the way to Andes.

I-87 to RT-17 VIA ROSCOE: This route has less food options and less traffic. It is also the most beautiful. Get yourself on I-87 North again. Take the exit for NY-17 W toward U.S. 6/Harriman (This is the exit for Woodbury Commons Outlet malls). Take NY-17 to Roscoe. Get off at Exit 94 for NY-206 toward Roscoe/Walton. Take a left when you get off the exit to follow NY-206. It will t-bone into NY-30. Take a right on NY-30. (You’ll drive around the Pepacton Reservoir which provides water to NYC!) When you go over the bridge for the reservoir, take a left onto B W S Rd No 4 (which becomes Tremperskill Rd). Take that road all the way to Andes. It will t-bone with NY-28/Main St. Take a right to drive into town.
