Super easy hike. One nice view point towards the beginning looking west/southwest. My watch clocked 6.5 miles for the hike. Lots and lots of blueberries right now!

Very crowded today. Not recommended for those who want to keep 6ft distance. Beautiful hike!

Great trail starts off moderate, becomes easy then moderate as you walk back down the scramble I recommend it! Consider it a walk in the park :)

Easy with spurts of moderate. I wouldn’t hike this again unless it was with a new hiker. Was pretty good for trail running though.

One of the best hikes in Harriman is: leave Bald Rocks Shelter, head East on Dunning, North on Long Path, West on Ramapo Dunderburg, then take Lichen to ASB trail to the AT to Island Pond then out to Elk Pen. The Dunning segment has Bowling Rocks, the Long Path is green even in Winter, and the RD and Lichen offers beautiful vistas and is lightly travelled.

Probably my favorite loop of Harriman. Besides the idiot making Tarzan sounds behind me for the first mile, After I got some distance...like always, it didn’t disappoint on a beaut of a Fall day.

This should NOT be categorized as Hard. It has even ATV trails on it and pretty moderate for even beginners. Just a couple of grand view points on the Lichen trail. Apart from that, pretty flat.

9.16.19. A really beautiful hike. Significant parts of it are over relatively smooth bedrock (gneiss and/or granite?) which makes for great walking, and as it's often dressed in lichens, it also rewards close scrutiny with a variety of colors and textures. I added on an extra section on the way back by taking the white blazed trail around to meet back up with the Red Dot trail. This added about a mile, so my stats look like this: Distance: 7.7 miles Elevation Gain: 1,253 feet Moving Time: 2:57:00

Completed this hike in early July. It’s a lovely walk and I enjoyed seeing the old mines along the way. Walking along the stone ridge was interesting but very hot! I will bring a baseball cap next time. :)

Enjoyable hike that sits between moderate and difficult. Trail is marked well but can be confusing -
