Solid hike decent views. I did a lunch at the camp ground and skipped the loop

Great trail if you prefer alone time. Only missed a couple of markers & had to double back due to tree blowdown. Rugged terrain in that there were many areas with jutting rocks & roots, but was a great hike nonetheless. Several areas required navigating running water but it had just rained heavily in the days prior. Would definitely hike here again.

Beautiful hike.. Lots of summits and great twisting paths and exposed rock, a lot fun.. No service, so make sure you have a map before you start!! Didn't find any maps at the trail head, so we got a little lost.. Def plan to come again and explore this gorgeous area!

Great hike! There is a section of trail that is flooded and swampy. We had to bushwhack around the swamp and eventually made it back to the trail. Not much maintenance has been done this season, lots of fallen trees and debris, but it is well marked. We saw a group of sharp shinned hawks. It appeared to be 2 adults and 1 or 2 yearlings.

A decent enough stroll through the woods. Not that challenging and a couple of nice spots along the way for some pretty views and scenery.

Great hike. Covers a lot of different terrain. Fair warning, though, as of 5/26/18 the last 1.5-ish was inaccessible without hiking through a swamp that’s overtaken the trail. It will likely recede as the summer progresses, but we had to backtrack around the lake yesterday.

Great hiking trail. My watch had the trail at about 8.6 without the offshoots shown on the map. Diverse terrain with no specific scenic outlook but overall a fun trail. Saw a few small waterfalls and the trail starts at a large lake.

Beautiful hike and as described moderately challenging. Apple Health app said we did about 120 flights, which is spot on for the elevation indicated. Ascents were enough to get the blood pumping but nothing crazy. Also came across a mid-19th century cemetery! A surprising amount of streams and waterfalls which made for some gorgeous photos and really helped this hike stand out. Would definitely hike it again!

Pleasant loop with a few good lookout spots. We started at 9:30am and finished by 1:15pm (took a few short snack breaks). There were a few sections of bouldering and the elevation gain made it a good workout. Be sure to follow trail markers to avoid extending the loop (which I did by about a mile at one branch).

I used the Waze navigation app to get to the trailhead. Once at the parking lot, there were blazes for two different trails but neither one was marked with the name of the trail. All I could do was pick one and follow it. I never found out what trail I was actually on, though I travelled it for over two hours before turning around.
The trails need some maintenance work. There are trees down across the trail in several places. At times, blazes became difficult to locate. Blazes should be marked more often. I found one nice waterfall from melting snow. I saw three hawks, a blue jay, and a rabbit. All in all, not much to see.

Bring some good waterproof boots!!!

great hike

This was a fun trail. VERY rocky. It was like a rock explosion every minute. Fun to traverse through the woods. Lots of people with doggies! Some cute rock scramblish spots, but no real climbing unless you go off trail and climb up one of the cliff sides yourself. And you will pass 3 of those before you’re done. Oh and no views on this loop. Must connect elsewhere for all that.

Did a different loop that intersects with the Dunning loop... nice hike with open hilltops and some mellow ups n downs.

Awesome trail.... Great Iron mine off the beaten path

Very hard to find the turnaround to make it a loop. Ended up 7 miles away from our car while it was getting dark. But it was beautiful and we had fun!

As an out of towner looking for a difficult hike the challenge left a lot to be desired. Minimal elevation gain, your at low altitude, and the terrain is not technical. There's a couple spots that require taking large steps up or down but no scrambling or anything like that. The bugs were horrific!!! Where I live I don't need bug spray so it never crossed my mind and I mauled by mosquitoes. The views are nice, it's definitely a pretty hike. The trail isn't very worn in and defined, I felt like I was bushwhacking at times. Lots of tree cover so baking in the sun isn't an issue. Please note to park at the trailhead it's $10 cash only per car and this loop does include a short section of walking along a road without a shoulder. Overall not bad, I'd do it again sometime but only after showering in bug spray.

Loved this hike...trails were loaded with lush green ferns and wild blueberry bushes. Exposed rock and views on the R-D trail were righteous!! Hike was also a bird lovers paradise...thousands of blueberry bushes led to tons of birds... was blessed to have watched an indigo bunting sing its lovely tune for close to ten minutes. Didn't see any bears but another hiker told me he saw 3 during his travels

Enjoyed this nice quick loop..great place for a bird enthusiast like myself. Lake was gorgeous..truly had a perfect day to hike. Plenty of places to enjoy a nice lunch as well. Good trail for any level of hiker

This was a nice hike with only moderate inclines as the TriangleTrail skirted the mountains for the most part (note: Triangle Trail mislabeled as of 6/26/17 to be the White Bar trail, go to https://parks.ny.gov/parks/attachments/HarrimanTrailMap.pdf until AllTrails has a chance to update their information). The Triangle Trail is marked with yellow triangles, sometimes with black outline. It is not a highly used trail. Wild blueberries abounded. Most trails are rocky, so watch your footing. Being in the lower section of the park on the Triangle Trail also had a lot of bugs, one of our party was bitten by three ticks, and this was the guy in the loose fitting t-shirt and jeans. (He ended up in the ER to have one removed Saturday night, it was immature and had burrowed in so only its legs were sticking out, yuck!). Anyway, the R-D (Ramapo Dunderberg) trail section was great, it meets the Triangle Trail at a nice point with scenic views. This trail is marked with a red dot on a white vertical bar. The section from this point to the Tom Jones shelter was not used very often, as the markers (painted) were showing signs of being weathered. There's a bit of a scramble to ascend to the shelter that was nerve-wracking with our too-heavy packs. The shelter location was wonderful, but there was not much wood for the fire to collect. Just before the scramble there was plenty and we would've done well to drag some along. The shelter itself features 2 fireplaces, three stone sides and a rain-proof roof. There's a raised wooden platform, seat height, to put your tent that takes up about half the shelter. Campers from recent times had left some niceties, like a deck of cards, garbage bags and wood. There's a campfire pit outside the shelter, plenty of grates to cook food around (old, but serviceable) and the terrain is grassy with some rocky outcroppings.
