Mohonk Preserve has four trailheads: One in the Northern Preserve (4. Spring Farm) and three in the Southern Preserve (1. Visitor Center, 2. West Trapps, and 3. Coxing). The numbers correspond to the trailhead numbers on the map to the right. You can reach New Paltz via a Trailways bus, but there currently is no public transportation from New Paltz to Mohonk Preserve.
Please note: Mohonk Mountain House is a separate property and resort adjoining the Preserve; it is not a Preserve trailhead. Questions regarding the Mountain House should be directed to their information line at (845) 255-1000 or (800) 772-6646.
