Sam's Point Preserve represents one of the best examples of a ridgetop dwarf pine barrens in the world. Part of the 90,000-acre Northern Shawangunk Mountains, Sam's Point Preserve features cliffs, summits, and plateaus that form a unique landscape of extraordinary ecological significance.

Seven well-marked trails criss-cross the preserve, winding through pine barrens, ice caves and open slabs of rock, providing views of the Catskills, Gertrude's Nose and other scenic vistas.
