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.
