Mohonk Preserve Trail

Mohonk Preserve Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Comprising more than 6400 acres along the Shawangunk Ridge, Mohonk Preserve is New York State’s largest privately owned nonprofit nature reserve. Developed through the purchase of land by the Smiley family in the past centuries, the preserve and neighboring Mountain House property (private and NOT dog-friendly) are well-known destinations for tourists, rock climbers, hikers, and others. The moderately difficult trail described here travels initially across a lightly traveled area of the preserve, then around a notorious section of the park known worldwide as a rock-climbing destination."
