From seeing pictures of a hike in the Mohonk Mountain that some friends did, we had to check this place out for ourselves. Mohonk Mountain house is about 1 hour 30 minutes drive from White Plains, situated near New Paltz. Mohonk means "lake in the sky" in the native American Indian language and is a luxurious hotel.
We hiked from the gate on the Huguenot trail, through Whitney Road up Sky Top Road to the Tower get the full view of The Mohonk Lake Region. We descended towards the Mohonk Lake and took the rock reef Labyrinth hike to the Crevice and ended back up at Sky Top. Part of the hike was a section of rock scrambling. It was a challenging obstacle course to the Sky Top Tower. Along the way we met a friendly couple that we later had dinner with at a quaint Bistro in New Paltz. It was quite an adventurous day.
