Very easy way to get around Mohonk.

Nice trail you can pick up the pace on if you choose... marked well... super view from the rocks

Why don't you let people know it's 21$ per person, and a 1,5mile walk to the start? I wanted to take my grandmother there and we were excited.

Loved it, some parts a bit bumpy, still a great ride
Bridge over the Wallkill River is closed for repairs, will have to make a trip back:)

I went up the opposite direction and it wasn't too bad of a climb. The overcliff trail was mostly human made paths but the rest of it was though. I did this in about 2hrs and 30 minutes.

Love biking this beautiful trail. Once the fall colors start this peaceful ride leaves you smiling while breathing in the crisp air. Really great trail.

Great stretch of trails perfect for gravel grinding. Bring hiking boots there's plenty to explore off the trails.

Started at trestle at Rosedale and headed south. Very nice flat walk although a bit buggy. Beautiful relaxing walk.

I absolutely loved it. You Park at the gate house and walk in. Adds about 4 miles to the hike (there and back) but it felt great. Mohonk is beautifully kept. Not strenuous at all, a couple inclines nothing bad. I went nice and early today and I had the hike to myself! It is $21.00 per person but if you have Mohonk Preserve membership it is $10.00

Thought this would be a shorter hike bringing my 6 yr old. Ended up being 6 miles round trip from parking. Very pretty up top though.

Beautiful and scenic hike during the fall months. A must !!

Some trials are a little difficult for a short while. I start hiking from the bottom entrance for a better workout. Most people travel from the resort but plenty of trails are around if you look.

I did a 22 mile round trip from New Paltz to north of Rosendale. Nice flat ride but one bridge was blocked and parts were muddy. The best part was the Rosendale trestle which has nice views.

Easy trail even in the rain. If this is your first time, this is a good trail to practice with

Moderate trail. Easy on the way out but moderate on the way back. A few steep and long inclines. Nice trail in woods and through fields​.

Great hike
Went with my kids 13 year old and my 1-1/2 year old in his carrier. We started from the visitors center did an 8 mile loop. Beautiful spring weather.
