    We did an abridged version of this trail called Sutherland Pond/ Scenic Trail/ Eagle Cliff Loop from Mine Hill Road on NY/NJ Trail Conference website: https://www.nynjtc.org/hike/sutherland-pondscenic-traileagle-cliff-loop-mine-hill-road

    The trails are all well labelled, and tho it says swimming, it's really a pond. Rocky slatey trail, may be strenuous for ppl with foot problems -- but my hiking companion has foot issues and was fine with it. The first part up from car to peak was somewhat strenuous but also relaxing. Good mix of uphill and flat. Good rock top hangout point view, but no breeze and for some reason didn't feel as expansive as other views in the area. It was also a million degrees out and 100% humid. Pond didn't seem cooling, like a good idea today.

    Saw a handful of other hikers, but mostly had the trail to ourselves. Tho we arrived around 1, we got an elusive parking spot in the 5 car lot. BUT- we really wanted to swim, came here to swim. So once we checked out the pond, we hiked back the way we came bc it was faster and so didn't get to see what were apparently beautiful views on the blue trail, which was part of the abridged loop back to mine hill road.

    would come back to do the complete loop or the longer trail, but not for swimming. however, there seems to be a different reservoir somewhere else on the longer trail?

    ABRIDGED LOLLIPOP LOOP: Did a portion of this trail, which started at 41.315548, -74.05004.

    Was looking for a moderate trail, with views, and hiked on a day when snow covered the trail. It was an extremely well-marked trail, not difficult to do, even in the snow, the only problem I encountered was seeing the stone path BEFORE the creek -- we hopped two creeks and then turned around and came back. Would have kept going were it not late in the day and snowy. I think in total it was about 2.6 mile loop.

    We got a late start to the day, and it was an ideal short hike with a brief uphill and great view. Did the lollipop circuit route as described here, very accurate route description: https://www.nynjtc.org/hike/long-path-long-mountain-summit-harriman-state-park#dialog-hike-description

    Very pretty trail overall for a nice nature walk. Takes a little while to leave the sounds of the road on either side of the park. Without map/route/park know-how it was a little difficult to "stay on trail" or know which trail we were on. The "bath tub at the side of the trail" was actually a v useful marker, but lost the trail after that. The river sounds are wonderful and foliage is v pretty. At the top is a beautiful "butterfly field" with walking path carved out. A completely different terrain which was a lovely unexpected surprise. Next time I might try the other route, turning right out of the parking lot into Chubb park.

    Felt like it needed some other activity nearby to justify the drive, like thrifting, antiquing, etc. Overall, it felt somewhat enclosed, like a very pretty trail for a nature walk in a park, as opposed to an expansive experience of being in a majestic place.
