Great hike! Challenging with a lot of variety. You might get a little bit wet.

Great hike. Sweet views along the way, changing elevation, shaded by trees, rock ridges. several clean water sources available (at least in April/may) for us & the dog. Did this as an overnight, but didn't stay near the shelters (too many Boy Scout troops!) easy enough to find other quiet spots. Did as a counter clockwise figure-8 hike: Ramapo>Nurian(white)>white bar > Dunning yellow > ramapo> long path > dunning yellow> Ramapo back to car. About 12 miles in total. Took about 5 hours taking our time to complete 3/4 of the figure eight. Took 20/30 mins to get back to the car the next day.

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 .
