Easy trail with a nice renovated fire tower to get some great views

Loved this loop, my favorite hike in Harriman I’ve done so far. Not difficult but a little slippery with some ice/moss on rocks. Lots of cool stuff here.

Nice little work out views from the tower and the shelter were very nice. Rocks were a bit slippery so watch. Clearly trail becomes a stream fairly regularly In places and developed algae on the rocks

Good work out, not too many people on the trail for such a beautiful January day. Muddy soft ground, the tower was fun to climb with great views.

12.10.19. Despite a gloomy, drizzly day, some fine views of the hills from the yellow blazed trail near the fire tower. My stats: Distance: 5.1 miles Elevation Gain: 945 feet Moving Time: 1:55:53

Really enjoyed this hike. More views because of the time of year with most of the leaves fallen. Great shelter 2 miles in for a snack break. If you want to each lunch before going around the lake, recommend going counter clockwise and sit on the rock formation jutting into the water surface. But it’s probably VERY busy during in-season with all the cabins and requires registration/guest status I guess because of how busy it is and the guests‘ use of the propriety. Totally makes sense.

A senior hiker a moderate trail for someone over 65. A few places at junctions alltrails saved the day. Nice view from the fire tower and from big hill. Enjoyable walk. A little muddy and a little rocky.

Pretty easy trail. Only went to the firetower and back. The views at the top were nice. Very cloudy but I was still able to see NYC on the horizon. Took the road back down instead of the trail to beat the sun.

Beautiful in Fall. Great hike to go an easy pace and complete in a day. Not too steep. Hiking shoes recommended bc lots of rocks. Fun stuff on the way. Ruins. Fire tower & great shelter with view to have lunch in! Hiked this with my 74 yr old Mama!

Great hike. Interesting to see Orak ruins. Restored fire tower was wonderful. Great views from top. Sorry we didn’t get there a few weeks ago when fall foliage was peaking. Great views from Big Hill also. Dry leaves were a little slippery at times. Overall I would rate it as easy to moderate. Will definitely be back.

Did an overnight trip here last night, was impressed with the amazing views from the fire tower (well maintained) and the shelter! There are many flat spots to camp that are around the shelter and had great firepits as well. It definitely is a bit more open than just camping in the woods, so it's something to be mindful of if it's windy/cold to be prepared. Only concern was that a few portions of the trail are covered in loose stones and covered with leaf layers, so watch your step!

Nice trail, highlights are definitely the view from the fire tower and the view of the city from Big Hill if it’s clear out! We actually continued past big hill for a bit, but the best scenic overlook was Big Hill. Well trafficked trail.

nice hike. not too hard. not much of a waterfall. a couple of nice opportunities to extend.

A great combo, and hats off to the restoration crew for the fire tower renewal project. The volunteers have a photo in the tower cabin at the top (see my trail description above).

Not bad! There is a view point but you have to climb up this water tower looking thing with like 40 flights of stairs. I would’ve done it by forfeited because my dog was with me

Reading the reviews before trying this trail helped us out a lot. My husband and I parked and entered through a gated area towards the right of the parking lot. The trail involves some climbing so be careful. Throughout our hike we saw a lot of chipmunks, bugs and some pretty cool looking mushrooms. The highlight was the fire tower. The view from the top was absolutely breathtaking! Will definitely come back to do it again.

Reading the reviews definitely helped with this hike. I parked and walked to the right and was able to find the paved entrance. I followed yellow on the way and kept reference of the map. I missed a few turn here and there. On the way back I followed green as recommended and did fine until you come to a large opening. If you continue forward and follow green, you’re off route on the map. I followed the map but there were no markers. Was relieved when I found my way back to the entrance. I went on a Thursday morning, saw no other people and there wasn’t much going on. Some cool mushrooms but no water, bummer for my dog who I ended up carrying (she’s 20 pounds) but that definitely added to the workout! All in all I might go back but would rather try another trail.

This trail is good for exercise with a lot of up and down hills, the view is not really good unless you have to climb up the tower to get a best view. The summit has nothing to see, if you’re lucky enough to barely see NYC skyline. It does has river at the parking lot, you can hang around when you go back.

Honestly was quite boring, wasn’t much of anything, if there were streams it would have still felt something, but no water at all. Won’t be coming back again

Starting point is not really pointed out. Besides it’s a great 5 mile trail, mix of paved, hard packed and rocks.
