You don't have to be a kid to enjoy this place. Its wonderful to just wander around, up and down and around. I went on a beautiful day and was unrushed. That is definitely the best way to visit. Don't go if you have three...More
Tricky to find but worth the effort, you pull in and park up pay the $10 the as you stroll to the structure the view hits you...... stunning. The vast stone works with the Catskill mountains in the background is truly beautiful.

This is a very unique place to visit and worth a detour if you are spending a weekend in the Saugerties or Rhinebeck area. The man transformed a blue stone quarry into an artistic monument using only the flat stones of the site. As it...More
Plan to spend the day here. It's is truly breathtaking. It's almost meditative. I wish I could have met the brilliant artist behind this place. I can't even fathom how he envisioned and/ or executed these phenomenal sculptures. I really can't wait to go back....More

Spent about an hour or so at this amazing outdoor art installation. You can walk around it, on it and view other sculptures in the semi-wooded areas. A short film describes the story; also there's a small museum. Very interesting.
This special attraction is beautiful, and has gorgeous views of the mountains. It was built utilizing at an old mine, and actually has a small miners' museum there which shows a film about the sculptor Harvey Fite, and exhibits mining tools as well. Opus 40...More
