I was in town on business and had a chance to do this trail, and it was great. The trail is very challenging and offers great views of the Hudson.

Good trail, well marked, easy to access - approx. 1.5 h drive from NYC. We took red>orange>black>white trails and the total loop was 5 miles, I did it twice and both times my watch was showing distance 5 miles.

Great views!!! Five stars
A definite hike for the avid hiker!!

Varied trails, great with kids.

Kanawauke Rd was closed so we parked down the street a bit at the kanawauke picnic area. We walked about a half mile down the road past the road black and bushwhacked up the unmarked side of black Rock Mountain untill we met up with the trail. These are some of the best vantage points I've ever gotten at Harriman with a very rocky open summit . From the top we continued along to the bald rocks and shelter area which is also very nice . from the Bald rocks we took the yellow trail about half a mile to an unmarked trail that led back to the road we started .

very nice trail. varied terrain. it took about 3.5 hours to do.
