OUTDOOR RECREATION

The Shawangunk Mountains
The Shawangunks are actually a ridge running North-East to South-West, located 6 miles west of New Paltz. For years climbers have used the abbreviated name "the Gunks" to refer to this ridge. An intricate system of carriageways allows walkers, joggers, hikers, cyclists, climbers, snowshoers and cross-country skiers to easily access parts of the ridge. Additionally, foot trails allow the hiker to reach backcountry areas and ridgetops. Overnight backpacking is not permitted in the Shawangunks. Rock climbing is allowed in designated areas.

The Catskill Forest Preserve
This land, encompassing almost 300,000 acres, includes 98 peaks over 3,000 feet. A large portion of the Preserve lies within Ulster County, as close as a 30-minute drive from New Paltz. Opportunities exist for extensive day and overnight hiking as well as a variety of other activities,  Skiing is also available in the Catskill Mountains at several locations approximately an hour's drive from New Paltz.
