The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference is pleased to announce the improved tenth edition of the Shawangunk Trails map set.  This three-map set includes more than 200 miles of maintained trails and carriage roads in the northern Shawangunk Mountains, including Minnewaska State Park Preserve and Mohonk Preserve.

This updated edition includes an entirely new Map 106B that features the route of the Long Path/Shawangunk Ridge Trail along a scenic stretch of the Shawangunk Mountains from Route 52 to Wurtsboro.  New parking areas and side trails that make possible several scenic loop hikes in this section are also shown.  Another enhanced feature of this edition is a new inset map that more clearly shows the complex area around Lake Minnewaska.

For all of the maps in this set, the contour elevation lines have been greatly enhanced using higher-resolution data than was previously available.  Several new parkland parcels have been added, recent trail relocations are shown, and other updates and enhancements have been made to make the maps more accurate and easy to use.

Additional map features including a large-scale map for the complex trail network in the area of Mohonk Mountain House, UTM gridlines, parking areas, scenic viewpoints, and other points of interest.  The maps show both carriage roads, many of which are open to bikes and horses, as well as foot trails, including the Long Path and Shawangunk Ridge Trail.  As always, the maps are available in print format in vibrant color on waterproof, tear-resistant Tyvek.

The Shawangunk Trails map set is affordably-priced at only $10.95 ($8.21 for members) and is a must-have for those who wish to explore the special features of the Shawangunk region, including breathtaking cliffs, pitch pines growing out of bedrock, and spectacular views.

To obtain this map set, shop online by clicking here, call 201-512-9348, or stop in at the Trail Conference office.  These maps are also available in digital format on Apple and Android devices through the PDF Maps app; find links to these digital maps and learn more about our GPS-enhanced maps at www.nynjtc.org/pdfmaps.

Shawangunk Trails was produced with support from Gravity Vault, an indoor rock gym with multiple locations throughout the area and retail partner of the Trail Conference.

Lomg Path Trail

I am trying to find ther msps for the continuation of the LOng Path whrn it exits from Harriman Park and heads north to the Gunks. PT

LP north of Harriman

The next map set that covers the Long Path as it leaves northern Harriman State Park is our 'West Hudson Trails' map set, which was just updated this year: http://www.nynjtc.org/product/west-hudson-trails This map set picks up where the Long Path on Harriman Map 119 leaves off.  The Long Path continues north into Schunemunk Mountain State Park and then heads southwest, coaligned with the Highlands Trail, to meet up with the converted-railbed Heritage Trail.  All of this is shown on the West Hudson Trails map set. From here, the Long Path follows the Heritage Trail and then a series of roads to the Shawangunk Ridge, where it meets up with the Shawangunk Ridge Trail and follows the ridge all the way up to Sam's Point and Minnewaska in the northern Gunks.  This stretch is currently not available as published maps, but you can find descriptions and some maps through our online Long Path Guide here: http://www.nynjtc.org/book/long-path-guide-softcopy   ~Jeremy, TC cartographer
