Parks NY – Minnewaska State Park Preserve – August 2020

Minnewaska State Park Preserve’s unique landscape was formed when glaciers were retreating from North America leaving stunning views behind. The park is open for all guests who want to enjoy the Awosting Falls, take a stroll or have a picnic by Lake Minnewaska, go swimming or get adventurous by choosing among multiple hiking and biking trails.

Many may be surprised but the park does not end at Lake Minnewaska. Lake Awosting is accessible by hiking or biking and allows swimming when a lifeguard is on duty. Additionally, there is another entrance at Sam’s Point where one can enjoy the Ice Caves hike.
