Just an hour north of New York City in the western Hudson Highlands, Schunnemunk Mountain has long been a mecca for hikers from both southeastern New York and northern New Jersey.
Extending more than eight miles with an elevation of 1,700 feet, the park’s namesake mountain juts above the landscape. A decade ago, OSI created Schunnemunk Mountain State Park and has steadily added to it since. Today, almost 3,300 acres of this hiking mecca are attributable to OSI's land preservation work.
The park contains:
- More than 30 miles of trails for hiking and bird watching, including a ridgeline path with magnificent views of the Hudson River, the Shawangunk Range, and the Catskills.
- Seven miles of the Long Path, a public hiking trail stretching 300 miles from the George Washington Bridge to John Boyd Thacher State Park.
- Views of the Moodna Viaduct, an historic bridge and regional landmark dating from 1910.
