Natural Feature
“a beautifully-maintained conservancy with hiking trails to the Ellenville Fault Ice Caves, a series of winding crevices and tunnels caused by re-freezing snow melts. It is a designated National Landmark and is well worth the visit. Pick wild blueberries along the trail in the summertime. The parking lot fills up, so it’s best to go early in the morning. And if you make the trip out there (about 30 minutes), definitely make a stop at the Mountain Brau Haus for a German lunch.”
