Nature at your doorstep: The Trapps

My favorite time to walk along the famous Trapps cliffs at Mohonk Preserve is in late fall, when the leaves are down, allowing unbroken views of rock faces and cliffs and more distant vistas through the bare branches. Also, the crowds have abated, especially on weekdays, or in blustery weather, when one encounters mostly rock climbers in small parties along Undercliff Road, trying out their skills on the sheer walls of quartzite conglomerate, and walking these carriageways has not been preempted yet by snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.  See full article.
