I've hiked there a few times. Parked in the small parking area off of Aumick Rd. Went as far as Lake Awosting via Spruce Glen. The latest series maps of the Shawangunks includes the trails there. Would recommend bringing that along.

I should have clarified. I am a regular hiker there. I was wondering who else was familiar with it. Thank you, though. My favorite spot is getting up to spruce glenn - especially after a fresh snow. Was just there last week and made it to Awosting. What a difference the seasons make. It was actually kind of scary. There were no tracks anywhere and there were 2-3 foot drifts on the main carriageway. The wind was really howling too. Quite a different beast than the tranquil summer days I often visit.

I have a question about the entrance to the AR from Campfire Rd. Has anyone hiked that trail? Do you have to park at the main entrance on Aumick Rd?
