A short, easy walk takes visitors to the beginning of trails you can take that will lead you along the rock climbing cliffs along Undercliff Carriage Road or up to summit views from Preserve lands or onto the neighboring lands of Minnewaska State Park Preserve or the Mohonk Mountain House. http://www.mohonkpreserve.org/west-trapps-trailhead
Very nice for a walk and amazing rock climbs!
A great easy hike! We took about 3 hours doing the entire loop- took a lot of time on Undercliff taking pics. Our dogs also loved the hike (which is actually a flat walk.) We saw a couple families so kids can definitely handle the hike, although the entire 5 mile loop might be a bit long- we were pretty worn out by the end! It cost $12 per person to go in btw.
Really nice trail!!
Absolutely beautiful, and fun ride! It was fun watching people rock climb. Also it is a nice ride if it's super hot and sunny since its shaded for the most part. Everyone we ran into, whether hiking, climbing, biking etc seemed to be enjoying themselves.
