It take about 12 miles roundtrip from lake Minnewaska parking lot to get to Awosting lake. They have swimming beach, berry picking and spectacular views .
This is my favorite hidden gem in the area. This lake is such a reward after a good long beautiful hike starting at Lake Minnewaska. You won't regret taking the time and putting in the effort to reach this destination while taking in the breath-taking views that are plentiful during the hike.
WIth a beach made of solid rock, this gorgeous lakes dedicated swimming area provides a brilliant way to douse after making the uphill moderate 4.5 mile hike.
