Walnut Mountain Park - Liberty, NY
Walnut Mountain Park is a 265 acre park located in Liberty, New York. Just under 30 minutes from Callicoon and the scenic Delaware River, Walnut Mountain is the second highest mountain in Sullivan County.
This Park was formally the property of the Walnut Mountain Hotel, which was located at the top face of the mountain. Foundations and the hotels fireplace can still be seen along the walking trails. The land was purchased by the Town of Liberty in the 1960’s and has since been developed into a park.
There are approximately 13 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails winding throughout the park, which are considered some of the best in the area.
At the base of the mountain the park has been developed with picnic areas, a baseball field, soccer field, playground, and a pavilion.
The Park can be accessed from either the William E. Pearson entrance at the end of Walnut Mountain Road (off Route 55, west of the Village of Liberty) or the Lake Street entrance (intersection of West Lake Street and Eagle Drive).
