The revised 11th edition of our Shawangunk Trails map set is now available in print and digital formats!

The revised 11th edition of our Shawangunk Trails map set, now featuring junction-to-junction trail mileage numbers, is a must-have for exploring the northern Shawangunks of New York.  This three-map set features more than 200 miles of maintained trails and carriage roads in Minnewaska State Park Preserve, Mohonk Preserve, Shawangunk Ridge State Forest, and other nearby parklands.

The 2019 edition now features junction-to-junction trail mileage numbers directly on the trails to help you plan out your route and navigate more safely out on the trails.  In addition, this revised edition includes several new trails, including the Stony Kill Falls Trail and the River-to-Ridge Trail, newly-preserved lands, changes to the roads and trails near the Lake Minnewaska park entrance, and the addition of several viewpoints.  Additional improvements and adjustments throughout the maps make this 11th edition of Shawangunk Trails our most accurate map yet of the northern Shawangunks.

Additional map features include a large-scale map of the complex trail network in the area of Mohonk Mountain House, 20-foot elevation contour lines, parking areas, scenic viewpoints and other points of interest, and UTM gridlines.  The maps show both carriage roads, many of which are open to bikes and horses, as well as foot trails, including the Long Path and Shawangunk Ridge Trail.

The maps are available in print format, in vibrant color on our popular waterproof, tear-resistant Tyvek; shop online, visit our headquarters, or look for them at an outdoor retailer near you.

In addition, the maps are also available on Apple and Android devices through the Avenza Maps app.  To get the latest maps, and to help ensure the Trail Conference receives as much of your support as possible, please consider making your purchase directly from the following links: Bundle of all 4 maps, Map 104 (Minnewaska), Map 105 (Minnewaska and Mohonk Preserve), Map 106A (Mohonk Mountain House), and Map 106B (Shawangunk Ridge to Wurtsboro).
