Awosting Falls is a beautiful waterfall within Minnewaska. If you are not familiar with Minnewaska, it’s a New York state park located in New Paltz, about an hour and 45 minutes from the city. It makes for a perfect day trip or weekend getaway as there is a lot to do within the surrounding area.
A total kid friendly activity -- it is only about a 10 minute walk from where you park your car to the bottom of the falls. Once you get to the waterfall there are tons of special little spots to have lunch and hangout. So make sure to pack a little picnic!
