Located just 90 miles north of New York City,
the Mohonk Preserve provides visitors access to over 6,500 acres in the
Shawangunk Mountains – including cliffs, forests, fields, ponds, and
streams – and to a network of over 100 miles of carriage roads and
trails for hiking, running, mountain biking, horseback riding, and
cross-country skiing. Also, the internationally renowned “Gunks” cliffs
offer over 1,000 technical rock climbing routes.
The largest member, and visitor-supported nature preserve in New York State,
the Mohonk Preserve was the first land trust established to protect the
northern Shawangunk Ridge, a section of the Appalachian Mountains.
Through research, education, and land management, the Preserve carries
out its mission to safeguard this land and to promote a wider
understanding of the environment and its role in our lives.
