Minnewaska State Park Preserve

Phone: (845) 255-0752

Join us for an exciting excursion on an assortment of historic carriage roads and footpaths to explore some of the lesser-traversed sections of the Park Preserve. For this approximately eight-mile hike, participants will hike Lower Awosting Carriage Road, Rainbow Falls Footpath, Scenic Trail Footpath and Lake Awosting Carriage Road. We’ll begin our hike on Lower Awosting Carriage Road and continue until the Rainbow Falls Footpath. Rainbow Falls features interesting backcountry terrain, and on a clear day, has a spectacular view of the Catskill Mountains. At the intersection of Castle Point, we’ll wander down to the Scenic Trail, walking past Margaret Cliff and Murray Hill on the way to the southwest end of Lake Awosting. From here, we’ll continue around Lake Awosting on the Lake Awosting Carriage Road and return on Lower Awosting Carriage Road, which is an easy walk back to the parking area. This hike includes some hiking over rock slabs, tree roots, a stream crossing and a rock scrambling section, which some hikers may find challenging. Participants must come with appropriate footwear and enough food and water to sustain themselves for the day. Meet in the Awosting Parking Area. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
