There are few places as beautiful as the Hudson Valley of NY in the autumn. It’s the perfect time to step outside and enjoy hiking the grounds of Mohonk Mountain House. You can come for the day, or go all out and spend a week. I guarantee you’ll want to return again and again once you discover all that Mohonk has to offer!
One activity you might enjoy is seeing how many of Mohonk’s summerhouses you can find. These adorably rustic covered benches are situated at perfect lookout points, and each one is unique. They were all built using materials from the surrounding area, and they are all maintained by the Rustic Department at Mohonk. Take note of which ones you find as you hike the property! Of course, they are perfect for photo ops.
When you’ve spent all your energy hiking and it’s time for a break, head to the sunset porch. There is a bar so you can get your favorite drink, and then you can relax on the wooden rocking chairs and gaze out at the lake view with the mountains in the background.
If you get a bit of a chill in the evening, you can turn the corner and find the fire pit, and look up to enjoy the night skies.
