Harriman -Long Path to Ruins - Upper Level Intermediate to Advanced Hike

  • April 28, 2013 · 9:30 AM

It is time to for another one of my Harriman Mix n Match hikes where we will take components from standard hikes in this case the Jackie Jones FireTower and the Big Hill Shelter and combine that with some undiscovered side trails, a lake or two, and maybe even a mini bushwhack. Mileage - Lets say something within the 7-11 range with the goal of being off-trail between 3 and 3:45.

This is not a beginner hike and my intention is to move at decent pace for the majority of the hike.

$1.00 fee for this event

Dogs are welcome

Driving Directions

Take the Palisades Interstate Parkway north to Exit 14 and turn left onto Willow Grove Road (County Route 98). In about two miles, the road joins County Route 106, which comes in from the right. Continue for another 0.2 mile, and park in a parking area on the left, just before crossing a bridge over a stream.


Alternatively, you can take N.J. Route 17 north to the New York State Thruway and take the first exit, Exit 15A (Sloatsburg). Turn left at the bottom of the ramp onto N.Y. Route 17 north and continue through the Village of Sloatsburg. Just beyond the village, turn right at the next traffic light, following the signs for Seven Lakes Drive and Harriman State Park. Continue to follow Seven Lakes Drive for about seven miles to the Kanawauke Circle. At the circle, turn right onto County Route 106 and follow it for 3.2 miles to a parking area on the right, just beyond a bridge over a stream.

Please remember to bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, hat,  and this might be a good time to break out (Dare I say it - ) the bug spray.

For NYC people - 7:44 train out of Grand Central to Croton harmon -gets in at 8:30 - Can take 3 people

Will send out update e-mail on Sat

    Unofficial mileage 12.6 - This was truly the most international hike in the history of the group. I think we had 6-7 different languages going today. Special thanks to everyone who attended.
