Very friendly people/staff and an outstanding Rnager staff to help guide you. Do stop in the Visitor Center to see the topographic map to see the cliffs, it really gives one a better idea of the landscape.
If you plan on hiking in the preserve to the Mohonk Mountain House, be ware it’s a total of 8-9 miles hike back and forth. The Mountain House also does not welcome hikers who are not registered guests. The hotel staff will make sure you...More

There is so much to do at Mohonk. So many outdoor activities & in such a beautiful setting. Also many indoor activities as well. It really is overwhelming & a must see especially if you are a New York State resident.
Note - it's private, not a state park, and you'll pay as much as $27 per adult in peak season to park & hike. It was worth it for us, amazing views, challenging rocky climbs along the Southern face (easier if you go North) -...More
We were unable to hike due to lack of time but the short drive we took up there and the walk to a beautiful waterfall was worth it in the lovely Fall weather. We would love to return and be able to explore this are...More

Yes you can park at the Mohonk Preserve Center where you can gain access after obtain a Property Pass. Also the location is a exhibit center to learn more about this wonder property that is very historical. Remember that during Peak Season it gets very busy and crowded.
If you want to enjoy something different by being a Day Guest at the House you can enjoy the Lunch, the property by the House, See the Gardens, Go to the Tower, Around the Lake and the additional trails that branch off those other trails near the house. Also you can enjoy the tea time there.
Walking the Preserve is just the forest and trails and scenery. For a very long walk from the Preserve you can make it to the House thru the back way of the property to the lake.
We have been going to the Mountain House for the last 39 years as a guest and love all the trails on the property, There is a special experience especially with the lookouts by the valley at every turn.
Enjoy you experiences...
