Hiking NY – Lake Minnewaska to Lake Awosting – June 2020

Minnewaska State Park Preserve is one of my favorite destinations within NY state. Has many gorgeous hiking trails, carriage ways for biking or simply picnicking by the lake. Today’s adventure is a hike to Lake Awosting via Castle Point and returning on Upper Awosting. This is a easy-moderate hike at 12.39 miles. This specific trail can be used for biking.

Park opens at 9am. During weekends, entrance is usually temporary closed by mid-morning for full parking and crowd control.
