Long Path to Long Mountain Summit, Harriman State Park

March 29, 2013

Distance: 2.2 miles
Time: 1 hour 22 minutes
Map: Harriman - Bear Mountain Trails - Northern Trail Map 119
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).
Restrooms: none
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

Climbing to the summit. Love the sunny weather.

Memorial to the founder of the NYNJTC. We certainly appreciate all the NYNJTC does!

Stream right before past the turn onto woods road. The woods road follows the stream for a while.
