  • Stayed in beautiful B&B, devoted time to running through the Gunks, with great trails and beautiful views 
  • Always wanted to checkout the "gunks" - so went on Friday after Thanksgiving with my children aged (24, 21 & 14) and the dog. We had a fairly strenuous day; about 9 miles of hiking. You can make this ...  more »
  • We stayed at Mohonk Mountain House and had opportunity of walking through various places in the reserve, which is really beautiful.

  • If you like to hike this is the place to go. Cost is about 20/head for a day pass to hike anywhere on the preserve except the mountain house. There are packages available for access to the mountain house for food and room. The view from the summit tower is fantastic and there is rock climbing for the daring.
  • 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.
  • One of the best trails in ny. Lemon squeeze is fun and the view from the top is amazing. Highly recommend walking the whole trail.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful. Stunning. Find a path and walk—the views here are fantastic.
