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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
