The Wallkill

The Wallkill Scenic Drive

We start this scenic drive  at Lake Mohawk, which is the mouth of the Wallkill River, and snakes north along the river to Sussex.

The views along the way include fertile farmland, rolling hills, and quaint towns with charming old buildings.

In Ogdensburg, learn about the region’s mining history at the Sterling Hill Mine Tour and Museum, then sample a local vintage at one of the several operating wineries near Sussex.

Along the way (a little off the path sometimes) are some restaurants to stop and enjoy:

Biergarten, Smokey’s Brick Oven Tavern, Crystal Tavern,

or there are some attractions in the area if you want to make a day of it.

Space Farms Zoo and Museum, Heaven’s Hill Farm &  Garden Market
