Awosting Falls Snowshoe Walk at Minnewaska

Minnewaska State Park Preserve


The best prescription to cure cabin fever is to get outside and enjoy the wonders of winter. Get a taste of the cure and come join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, for an approximately two-and-a-half mile-long snowshoe walk along the charming Awosting Falls Carriage Road. Leaving from the Peter's Kill Area, our route will take us on a slight uphill grade past a towering rock formation and along the Peter's Kill stream, before reaching our destination, the iconic 65-foot tall Awosting Falls. This program is recommended for physically fit adults and children older than eight years old. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. A limited number of snowshoes are available for participants to borrow for this program from the Education Department. Otherwise, snowshoes may be rented for this program from the Park Preserve for a fee. Please plan to arrive by 9:30 a.m. if you will be borrowing snowshoes. If there is insufficient snow cover, this program will be offered as a hike. All visitors, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask when inside buildings. All unvaccinated participants are encouraged to wear face coverings and keep a minimum six-foot distance away from others who are not part of their immediate household when outside. Meet at the Peter's Kill Parking Area. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
