Upstate New York Day Trips

There's So Much To See and Do

Located in the middle of 40,000 acres of pristine forest along the Shawangunk Mountains, Mohonk Mountain House is a beautifully scenic Victorian castle resort with an abundance of activities available onsite. If you do not have an overnight reservation, we invite you to purchase a grounds pass to enjoy hiking or make a reservation for a meal for access to selected activities at our resort.

Guests who are interested in visiting on a day trip from NYC may purchase a hiking pass at the Gatehouse and park in the adjacent lot. The suggested walking route from the Gatehouse to Picnic Lodge is Huguenot Trail to Whitney Road to North Lookout Road – there will be signs to Picnic Lodge. The distance is approximately two miles.
