Will try to offer a little bit of everything in one of my favorite areas of Harriman. I am estimating something in the 7-8 mile range but I will optimize the shade when hiking and minimize the strain. I am also planning time with water so please bring your suit. Will review water options before the hike. I do plan to spend more time than I typically take enjoying the water.
Plan is to be back to cars sometime between 3 and 4
