Parking: Off of Route 6, west of Long Mountain Circle. Plenty of room for lots of cars. Some people park there and just hang out in their cars (non-hikers).
Post hike dinner: Jewel of Himalaya
Directions: Long Mountain Loop, Harriman
Notes: This was a fabulous hike. It provides great views at the summit for minimal effort. There are no road crossings. It also has a stream after you descend Long Mountain. We only saw 3 other hikers out on the trail today (though many cars parked in the parking area).
Year to date miles: 22.6
