Pfalz Point Trail Challenge

Pfalz Point Trail Challenge 
10-mile Benefit Run

Thanks for Participating in the 2019 Pfalz Point Trail Challenge! 

The weather was just perfect for this year’s Challenge and we are so pleased you were able to take to the trails and run along 10 miles of pristine trails and carriage roads. With your help we raised nearly $20,000 to help support Mohonk Preserve’s many public programs, scientific research, and land stewardship and protection projects.  

You can view event photographs taken by Mohonk Preserve Volunteer Photographers as well as the overall race results and race awards.
