150 acres of fields, forest, and wetlands located at the base of the Shawangunk Ridge and bordering the Shawangunk Kill; Moonbeams is a quiet hidden gem. Donated to the Orange County Land Trust by The Nature Conservancy, this lovely preserve is open to the public for hiking, birding, and nature study. Grass field parking and an informational kiosk – describing the preserve’s two trail systems, history, and interesting flora and fauna found on the preserve – are available at the entrance.
Be advised that due to ground-nesting bird habitat, dogs are not permitted on this preserve. We apologize for the inconvenience.
