By Car From the South: Take NY Thruway 87 to Exit 19 (Kingston). At the traffic circle, take Route 28 West (Pine Hill) for about 20 miles. Turn right at the Mt Tremper exit. Follow the road until you reach a four way intersection. Turn left (onto Plank Rd), cross the bridge, and the entrance is a driveway on the right. It takes about 2.5 hours to drive from NYC.
By Car From the North: Take NY Thruway 87 to Exit 20 (Saugerties). Turn left on Route 32, then turn right onto Route 212. After about 10 miles, bear left onto Wittenberg Road. Continue on Wittenberg Road until you reach the stop sign where it intersects with Route 212. Go straight through stop sign, past triangular intersection, across small bridge. The Monastery front gate should be visible on your right after you cross the bridge. (*Please note: We would normally recommend taking Route 212 all the way to the Monastery. However, at this time, due to construction, Route 212 is closed about a mile from the Monastery. Please use Wittenberg Road as a detour.)
