Rockland County: Rockhouse Mountain is a 3.7 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Pomona, NY that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
This review covers more than Rockhouse Mountain, but I could not find a better location to put this review. I started from the parking lot at Lake Skannatati and headed north out of the parking lot on the Arden-Surebridge trail up Pine Swamp Mountain. The hike was approximately 9 miles and takes the Red Crosses trail around Hasenclever Mountain and to the Tiorati Brook. You will return on the Breech trail up and over Nat House Mountain, past a Civil War cemetery, and Rockhouse Mountain. In all, I would rate this a moderate trail with on real difficult sections or climbs.
