With its extraordinary Shawangunk crags, cliffscapes, and sky lakes, Minnewaska State Park Preserve rivals America’s national parks for scenic inspiration. Historic carriage roads and footpaths thread through a rare and enchanting forest on the ridge, making the park’s wonders accessible to everyone.
And now, thanks in part to $3 million raised by OSI, the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center offers a central location to welcome and guide visitors as they set out to explore the park. Completed in 2020, the center improves overall public access to the park by familiarizing visitors with all of the park’s scenic destinations, providing upgraded visitor amenities, and guiding visitors to new opportunities for walking, running, hiking, biking, cross-country
skiing, and more.
