Description

You can drive here, but please consider hiking through the Labyrinth and Lemon Squeeze. This makes the view overlooking Mohonk Lake and the surround Catskill Mountains just that much more rewarding. Also, it gives you the chance to rock scramble a little!

Short Hike: 1.3 mile hike from the parking lot to Mohonk Lake, followed by a .7 mile rock scramble up the side of the cliffs where Skytop sits.
