This is the start of most trails coming from the ranger station. It's one of the most picturesque trails as your walking along the brook crossing small bridges.

A very easy hike with a few interesting and challenging sections thrown in. There is good parking at the Tuxedo train station, which also allows hikers from NYC to travel up without a car. It is about a .5 mile walk on city streets from the parking to the trail head on Grove Drive. I did the hike in a counter clockwise direction, but you can easily do it the other way as well. Very nice views from Sleater Hill, the top of Dater Mt at the spot called A;most Perpendicular. The trail gives you a choice on the Blue Disc Trail, approximately 750 feet after you pass through the pipeline clearing, the trail splits - the easy trail walks on top of a ridge. While the "not' easy section continues downhill and follows the base of ridge. The trail takes you through two crevices called the "Elbow Brush" - a little fun section - not difficult at all. In all - a very good hike.

This has been my favorite Harriman hike for many years in all seasons. It's a short intense push that's rewarded with great views.

Hiked the trail on 3/25. 1 inch of snow on the ground, muddy in spots. Zero people on the trail. I started at Almost Perpendicular and then followed the ridge behind it. A lovely afternoon - this is one of my favorite spots.
