Personal Message from Dr. Lesniak
 
 
 
 
Spring is now in a full swing which gives us an opportunity to spend more time outdoors. I encourage all my patients to exercise anyway they can, whether it's brisk walking, hiking, biking, or weight training.  My own favorite form of exercise is mountain biking and I often ride together with my wife.  You would be surprised to learn that this is not unique to MEA, as many other doctors are also serious mountain bikers.

New Jersey offers several beautiful biking trails such as the Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park in Mercer County; Bucks County also offers several great places to bike. However, my favorite place to hike or ride a bike is Minnewaska State Park Preserve.  It is located about 2 hours north from Mercer County in upstate New York.  The park offers spectacular views of the nearby Catskill Mountains, two lakes, and numerous carriageways for hiking and biking. The Mohonk Mountain House pictured below is located next to the park and also offers hiking trails.

My wife and I visit Minnewaska State Park Preserve several times a year and we feel that it is the most beautiful park within driving distance from New Jersey and Pennsylvania.  For more information about Minnewaska State Park Preserve, click here.
