With so many state parks in New York (180, to be exact), it can be easy to overlook some. With work, family, and other life responsibilities, it’s tough to explore every area of every park. One spot you definitely want to make time for is the Sam’s Point Preserve. This section of Minnewaska State Park is gorgeous, and has some really unique scenery you can’t find anywhere else. At 4,600 acres, it’s larger than many standalone parks. It’s got unusual trees, ice caves, cliffs, trails, waterfalls, and more. There’s so much to see here!
