Description
Waypoints (11)

What this hike lacks in distance, it makes up for in steep, rocky climbs. Since there are no major attractions, this route isn't too heavily trafficked, although the parking area is full of people during the summer months. One of the best parts of the hike is being able to walk part of The Long Path and the Appalachian Trail in the same day. This route does include a short section along a road without a shoulder. Parking at the trailhead is $10 cash only per car.

Considerably easy. Completely covered in snow. Bring snowshoes, crampons or cross country ski. The long path was empty.

If your looking for a hike in Harriman that won’t be too crowded, this is it. Not too difficult with some nice views. All Trails listed this at 5 miles but my recording & Apple Watch listed this at 6 miles.

Enjoyed this hike today with three adults and a dog. We had intended to take a hike a few miles away but that parking lot was full and we ended up here. It didn’t disappoint! Enjoyed the rocks, saw several deer and a snake, and liked the varying terrain along the hike. Also saw an old mine! We didn’t take the exact path shown but very similar. At times some markers were hard to find and we were happy we had three pairs of eyes to look for them. Parking was easy. No fee was charged at the parking lot - maybe since it’s now October.

HikingGreat!Off trailRocky

Lovely trail! We hiked it clockwise with a group that included a 7-year old and really enjoyed it. There’s a lot of up and down but all moderate, no scrambling but some rocky areas. Views are limited on the elevated parts but that didn’t make it less beautiful for us. Trail was moderately trafficked, we were on our own for long stretches and seeing hikers who were clearly on a long hiking expedition on the Appalachian or Long Path trails was a nice touch. The terrain is quite varied, so it doesn‘t get boring. I wouldn’t do the hike without GPS as it‘s easy to go off the trail, especially if you don’t pay close attention every moment. The other benefit of this trail is the large parking lot right by Lake Tiorati - you don’t have to worry about getting a spot and can conclude the hike sitting by the lake or going for a swim.

HikingGreat!

Great hike, though agree with previous comments that it is easy to go off of the trail if you're not following the map. We ended up adding a bit on to the hike because we took a wrong turn! The parking lot marks an easy place to start and the hike itself wasn't crowded at all. Overall a really lovely day.

Great hike! Perfect for dogs too. Just make sure to check your map because it’s easy to wander off the main loop without realizing it.

Just did this hike today. It was ok. There are no views at all, so definitely no wow moments on this hike. It is a decent workout. At the intersection between the Appalachian Trail and where it goes back down through the Long Trail I decided to continue onto the Appalachian Trail to Island Pond. Now that lake is beautiful. Better than Tiorati. Quiet, not too many people, no cars, the perfect place to swim, relax, eat- whatever. There were a few people stand-up paddleboarding too! I'm glad I went a bit off trail before heading back and continuing. The parking lot was not as full as it has been in previous weeks, however for the first time this season they started charging a parking fee- $6 and you don't have to pay in cash, which was good, because I was not prepared.

Beautiful. Pretty easy trail. We went out on green trail and looped back on white trail. Very few people on green trail, little busier on white. We got there at 11:30 and most parking lots were full. We got lucky that someone left and we’re able to get in

Did this clockwise on a quarantine weekend morning - relatively few people out on the trails in the morning but by the afternoon it is PACKED. Wonderful little hike. Moderate difficulty for the area; I have no idea where people are claiming to have scrambled along the route. Few big "wow!" vistas or landmarks, but plenty of interesting terrain and points of mild payoff. Trailfinding is easy and there's signage at all major intersections.

Good mix of terrain. Dry. Good for dogs, though some areas a bit rocky/muddy. Mostly dry today. Picnic tables by the parking lot.

We hiked this trail with our dog and really enjoyed it. Definitely moderate level. We took others’ advice and went clockwise, staring from the Lake Tirorati parking lot, following the blue blazes up the hill, and staring to the left side of the road until the path turned towards the left and up towards the water tower. Around the water tower you will bear left to follow the white blazes for the Appalachian Trail. Note that there are also red and white blazes but it is very clear from the painting on a rock when the trails split. Stay to the right to follow the white blazes. They are very well marked. When you get to the information sign at the trail intersection follow the green blazes to your right to take the Long Trail back to Arden Road. Note that many of the green trail markings are faded and hard to see. Also be prepared for many trees down to cross and three pipelines in a rocky field towards the end of the trail.
