  • Saturday, May 2nd, 6am.

    Rock The Ridge is a 50-mile endurance challenge and environmental fundraiser set in the natural beauty of Mohonk Preserve, a vast, nonprofit nature preserve situated in the mid-Hudson Valley of New York State. The goal is to traverse a 50-mile course within 24 hours by walking, hiking, or running. The course winds along carriage roads and paths through the forests and over the ridgelines of the Preserve, lands which The Nature Conservancy has described as “one of Earth's last great places.”
