Reviews Photos Tracks Alicia Devero (807) 6 days ago N/A: 41 Completed 18 Reviews My hike was way longer than 3 miles since it was the my first time at Mohonk area and we parked at one of those Parking lots way at the bottom of the trail. Yet, even though longer it is not demanding, maybe except for the distance. Leads mostly along the carriage roads, with beautiful views from the rim and the Mohonk Lake is like a little hidden treasure in the middle of the forest. I had a hand on a sling and didn't have any problems hiking any portion of the trail. Nice, relaxing hike not too far away from New York. Bernie Lange about 1 month ago N/A: 65 Completed 8 Reviews Very nice hike. The New Paltz area has a lot to offer for hiking. Mohonk is expensive for a day hike. However the trails are maintained very well and the staff on hand have excellent knowledge of the area and hikes in the surrounding areas. Great views. Bridgette Borland (474) 11 months ago N/A: 10 Completed 9 Reviews The parking fee is a little more than a State Park but it's an experience. I've enjoyed this hike in various stages of my life: as a child, newly wed, and a mother and it really leaves an impression. I've stayed at the Mohonk House twice and that may be the reason. But it's not too overwhelming, yet you can climb over big boulders and picnic in private. It also gives you a little taste of rock climbing without any danger.

Suzanne St John (1280) about 2 years ago N/A: 12 Completed 8 Reviews Been going to Mohonk for over 30 years & I'll admit the people and crowds have changed over the years but tis is just one of the most breath thing places in the world to hike...you must do the Lemon Squeeze while at Mohonk....its a difficult rock scramble but so worth the views especially from Sky Top....TIP* go hiking in the early hours or when tea is served at 4pm and the crowds are much less.... Nicholas Abate (2668) over 2 years ago N/A: 66 Completed 66 Reviews Too much money for too many people. Nice views. Nice terrain. Too crowded. Kristopher LaGreca (109) almost 3 years ago N/A: 1 Completed 1 Reviews highway robbery. Most of the parking is on private grounds - run by the Mohonk "Preserve" or Mohonk Mountain House. They wanted $12 *per person.* Thats insane. Stick with the State parks. Boblinda Decker (257) over 3 years ago N/A: 1 Completed 5 Reviews A great day, easy trail and plenty of nature to enjoy.
