Mohonk Preserve Clothing Optional Trail At Split Rock. Read full article
Mohonk Preserve – We went there on a sunny day in August. There are numerous hiking and mountain biking trails all over this mountainous rural area, not to mention rock climbing and various other outdoor activities you can do there. The place we went to is a clothing-optional section on the Coxing Trail. The closest parking lot is at the Coxing Trail Head. This lot fills up quickly. It was full upon our afternoon arrival so instead we parked at the West Trapps trail head. This was a longer ways away (approx 30 minutes), but a nice hike anyway! It’s a relatively easy hike, but sneakers are recommended. The trail runs along a stream called Coxing Kill, and first you pass through the clothing-required part, along with a
popular spot called Split Rock. Then a ways down you reach that sign posted on the tree.
And you can remove all clothing and be as freely nude as the wildlife! [There is so sadly no established name for this area. Many refer to it as Split Rock, even though that’s the name of the textile section. More on this later.] A little further down we found the area where people (mostly men on this day) hang out on the flat rock lounging out in chairs or on towels. It’s in the middle of the woods so there’s a mix of shade and sun. The stream of water moves steadily around the rock, creating pools and little waterfalls. So pretty and serene!;
