Highland-Lake is located in the Hudson Valley region of upstate New York, about 90 minutes north of New York City. It's near Bear Mountain, which is the site of a popular, four-season state park, known for its' wintertime skiing and snowmobiling and swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing and camping in the summertime. The very first section of the Appalachian Trail was laid at Bear Mountain, and the trail takes hikers south to the Delaware Water Gap. Paddle boats and rowboats are available for rent at Hessian Lake in the park, and a hike up Bear Mountain to the Perkins Memorial Tower rewards visitors with a spectacular view of the Hudson Valley and beyond. Picnic areas and playgrounds are scattered throughout the park, and many festivals and craft shows are held at Bear Mountain throughout the year. The region surrounding Highland Lake is a haven for sightseers, with quaint 19th century villages filled with lots of antique shops and unique boutiques, romantic bed & breakfasts and cozy restaurants. The Constitution Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary is located near the town of Garrison, a 200-acre preserve that is operated by the National Audubon Society. Visitors can either canoe the marsh or enjoy a hike through it along a boardwalk.

This zone receives 41.7 inches of precipitation and 24.8 inches of snowfall in an average year. Thunderstorms occur on an average of 20 to 30 days per year, with the greatest frequency during the summer months and in the afternoon or evening.
