View from Eagle Cliff
New Paltz, NY
Nestled below the stunning Shawangunk Ridge, New Paltz, NY, is one of the hidden gems of Ulster County. Spend sunny afternoons swimming in glacial lakes, or cycle along the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail for a natural escape. Later, work up an appetite bouldering from the many rock faces, before touring the region’s charming vineyards and al fresco cafes. At night, retreat the region’s many charming lodges, like the Mohonk Mountain House. Built in 1869, this Victorian castle is now an elegant resort whose lush gardens and Victorian parlors offer unparalleled views of Lake Mohonk.
