  • Can I give less than 1 star? If you're a hotel guest you might have a different experience, but if you're a day guest, expect to be treated poorly. A member of our group had an old knee injury that th...  read more »
  • We hiked here yesterday, (beginning of October) although the leaves did not peak it was still beautiful and serene. There weren't too many people, which was a surprise since I am told it can pack out ...  read more »
  • Great mountain for easy hikes or walks. Had two young ones with us and they had a ball walking the trails with some random inclines once in a while. Very peaceful. Nice grounds. 
  • One of the most wonderful places on the east coast. Most widely known for world class rock climbing on its cliffs. It is a pay to use private property (non profit) that connects together with the Mohonk Mountain House and Minniwaska State Park. You can explore some of the best views of beautiful cliffs on 50 miles of maintained carriage roads, an endless supply of technical hiking including the famous Labyrinth and Lemon Squeezer trail at the Mountain House. Spot some Peregrine Falcons nesting on the cliffs and dive bombing intruding birds. Stop at the visitors center for a map and information.
  • Incredible scenery. One of the most enjoyable and difficult hikes in the Carskills. There are plenty of different trails ranging from easy to only for the brave and the foolish. Be warned there is a price of about $20 to hike here, but definitely worth it.
  • New York States largest non-profit Nature Preserve offers hiking, climbing, biking. Varied topography and ecology offers something for everyone. Visit the Preserve Visitors Center for advice and maps. A visitors fee is charges to enter lands. (Preserve is member and visitor funded - this is not public land)
  • Spent many a wonderful days there, having the Sunday brunches and great dinners with my aunt and uncle who would spend a month to 6 weeks a year at the hotel. Love the hiking the gardens and the great porch over looking that fabulous lake. Isn't that what it is all about. The area is a natural wonder one must see.
  • Spectacular Sylvan woodland with inspirational geology, fuel for the fusion in any poet's heart... But sadly the contemptible administrators of this Parkland restrict access making it a deeply hostile experience unless you're willing to pay out the $50 for single-use access at $12 a head or more assuming you go with a few friends to enjoy a few hours walk
