There are several pools for skinny-dipping and rock areas for sunbathing. A small number of bathers are in the nude area, that includes some gay men. From Interstate 87 in the Poughkeepsie area, take Exit 18 and head west on State Route 299. Continue about 7 miles through the town of New Paltz all the way to the end of the route at the junction with US Highway 44. Turn right on US-44 abd go 4 miles. Turn right onto Clove Road. After 0.3 mile, bear right to stay on Clove Road and continue about a mile farther to the Coxing Trailhead parking lot on the left. Cross the road to reach Coxing Kill Creek. There is a footbridge over the creek near Split Rock swimming hole (bathing suits). Cross and turn left, following the trail along the creek downstream about 10 minutes. Look for a sign posted on a tree that says "Beyond this point you may encounter nudity."
