Distance: 1 mile
This rock scramble from Mohonk Mountain House resort is short, intense, and seriously fun. Take the smallest backpack you own and make sure your hands are free; you’ll need them to crawl, climb, and contort yourself through impossibly tiny crevices in the rocks. With sections named “Fat Man’s Misery” and “Lemon Squeezer” (hint: you’re the citrus), this may not be the hike for you if you get claustrophobic or are scared of heights. For everyone else, it’s a total blast, and definitely worth the steep $26 entrance fee to Mohonk Preserve.
