Take the New York State Thruway to Exit 18 (New Paltz). After paying the toll, turn left onto Route 299 and continue west through the Village of New Paltz. When you cross the bridge over the Wallkill River at the west end of the village, continue ahead on Route 299 (do not turn right towards the Mohonk Mountain House). In another 5.6 miles (from the Wallkill River bridge), Route 299 ends at a T intersection with Route 44/55. Turn right here and follow Route 44/55 as it negotiates a very sharp hairpin turn and climbs to pass under the Trapps Bridge (a steel overpass). Continue for 3.0 miles past the Trapps Bridge to the entrance to Minnewaska State Park Preserve, on the left side of the road. A $6 per-person trail fee is charged at the gatehouse when cross-country skiing is available; at other times, an $8 parking fee is charged. Continue uphill for 0.4 mile to the parking area at Lake Minnewaska.

    Alex, как этот крем от клещей называется по-английски ?

    June 23, 2014

    • Alex

      Подойдет любой крем. Крем перекрывает доступ воздуха и клещ вылазит сам

    This is very good route! Views along the route are very impressive. I do not want to scary anyone, just watch out your path for “brash” black snake that can cross wide path trails/roads without paying attention on group of people.

      Маршрут, деиствительно красивый!
      Змеи были,есть и будут :-)
      Нужно соблюдать простые правила безопасности:
      - Ботинки
      - длинные носки
      - обязательно длинные, тонкие брюки( также от клещей и царапин)

      В моем рюкзаке всегда набор от укуса змеи.



      Змеи не питаются туристами, а жалят только в случае самообороны.
      При появлении людей уползают.
      Если увидел змею, обойди.
      А вообще то я иду первым, так что Вам крупно повезет если удастся увидеть и сфотографировать змею :-)
