Minnewaska State Park Preserve | 2021

Kerhonkson, NY

Minnewaska State Park Preserve in New York is located in the Shawangunk Mountains, rising more than 2,000 feet above sea level and marked by steep, rocky terrain. A variety of natural features can be found within the park, including waterfalls, lakes, hardwood forests, and dramatic cliff bands. Visitors come to the park to walk, bike, swim, picnic, and climb, among many other opportunities.  Due to its dramatic topography and potential for both stunning views and exposed terrain, trail widening, undesignated trails, and trampled vegetation have become serious impacts at the park.

*Minnewaska State Park Preserve is located on the ancestral lands of the Lenape and possibly other tribes*
