Live in NYC (no big surprise!). We come for the hiking!, but like to read, explore & bike. We would not bring bikes though. Wife & I both went to Quaker colleges. Came to Mohonk for the first time 30 years ago in part from curiousity & in part because of that connection and have been coming back every since. Love it enough to have made our daughter life member in the Preserve. Truely about time we stay in New Paltz.
