The trails traverse open fields, through deep forests, and up steep mountain sides. The views from Mohawk Mt. are spectacular. Mohawk State Forest is extremely well maintained and is visited by tens of thousands of people each year. It's also a popular destination for rock climbers, and amateur scientists who love to absorb the diverse ecosystem and natural settings. (In the wintertime, Mohawk has designated areas for cross country skiing and snowmobiling.) Though it may seem like Mohawk would be crowded with a lot of people it's not really like that most of the time. The park is big enough that you can always find a quiet section to explore and 90% of the people who visit don't venture far from their cars. In fact, most people like to park at a scenic overlook or picnic area.
