Did a modified version of this hike. Sort of a figure 8 on a lollipop: Ramapo-Dunderberg over Black Rock Mountain to Hogencamp Mountain, then caught the Long Path at Times Square to Dunning. Followed that all the way to White Bar and then back up Durian to Black Rock Mountain, back down Ramapo-Dunderberg and out back to my car. Had to park a 1/4 mile west on Kanawauke Road since the parking area near the R-D trailhead was packed. Some great views from Black Rock and Hogencamp Mountains, lots of nice slab walking, some shady forest areas, big glacial rocks and abandoned mines. The boulder tunnel at Cape Horn on the Long Path was a fun surprise. The push back up Nurian to Black Rock Mountain at the end had me sucking some air. Only downside of this part of Harriman: motorcyclists who use Kanawauke Road as their personal speedway. Apart from the noise (which is only really noticeable at the start and end of the hike), it's a danger to hikers walking along the road and people getting in and out of parking areas.

About 8.5 miles round trip.

Awesome hike. Unfortunately the All Trails app was ABSOLUTELY useless. My location kept bouncing back to the physical location of the cellular towers and not my location on the trail. Luckily Google Maps worked and I was able to navigate.

Nice hike with varied terrain...thought it was more on the moderate side than difficult. Many places to camp, if so inclined to do so, including a shelter along the trail. Went on a Saturday morning and there was certainly a crowd enjoying the loop. Took the red blazed RD Trail to the yellow blazed Dunning Trail to the aqua blazed Long Path back to the RD Trail...took me around 4 hrs to complete.

Great hike. Went on a weekend day (although it was above 90 degrees) and only saw three other people. Great views and a good workout.

Did this exact hike today. R-D ridgewalk is a favorite. Lots of people and dogs, but certainly not as crowded as Reeves Brook area. Moderate, not difficult

Good hike. We did white/red middle to Green turn right at Times Square follow green until yellow path again turn right and follow until you see white with red in middle turn left and follow back to start. About 7 miles. This path is nice in all different seasons. Enjoy and be safe.

Great hike. Awesome views. Solid intermediate hike. Great for families and nature lovers. Went on a weekday. Only saw a family and a couple of people. There is a campsite 1.5 miles into the hike. Camped overnight on a prior hike.

Great, hike. I would say moderate over difficult, lots of different terrain but really loved all the rocks. Unfortunately i found the hike too crowded for me, for the weekend, so recommend doing it on the weekdays.

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 .
