Stony Kill Waterfall is Closed for Construction of a New Trail

A formal hiking trail is being created to provide safe access for visitors to view of the Stony Kill Waterfall at Minnewaska State Park.  The Stony Kill Area Trail Project has gotten underway and proposed to cost about $343,087 according to an article online in the New Paltz Times.

The trail will include two footbridges, and multiple stone steps through the steep slope to the peak of the waterfall.  The project is being funded by an Environmental Protection Foundation grant from the New York State Office of park, Recreation and Historic Preservation to the Palisades Parks Conservancy along with support from the Palisades Interstate Park Commission.

The Stony Kill area will be closed for the duration of the project.  Partial access may be allowed in the future.  While the project was awarded to a firm to complete, that firm also tapes into volunteers from Jolly Rovers and the New York New Jersey Trail Conference.
