|Park Description:|| |
The Mohonk Mountain House, together with the landscape surrounding it, was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986. Its 2,200-acre grounds, extending from Copes Lookout on the south to the Mountain Rest Golf Course on the north, feature miles of trails and carriageways ideally suited for hiking. Mohonk's hallmarks are the rustic gazebos [known locally as a summerhouses] situated atop cliffs or amid boulders to capture an artful setting or view.
|Trails Overview:|| |
Day visitor passes, parking, maps, and information are available at the gatehouse. A limited number of day visitor passes is sold each day. The day pass entitles the bearer to hike the carriageways, trails, and paths, and to tour the grounds, and is also honored on the adjoining Mohonk Preserve lands. Day visitors are not permitted to enter the Mountain House or to use the lake and its facilities unless purchasing a meal.
In winter, when trails are open for skiing, hiking is not permitted. On busy spring and fall weekends, parking areas may fill up by mid-morning, and the gate closes. Call ahead [Contact Information below] to find out whether trails are open to hiking or skiing, or filled to capacity and closed.
