Harriman: Lemon Squeezer / Times Square

  • Oct 13, 2012 · 9:30 AM

Join us for a strenuous hike in Harriman State Park. We will hike in the western section of the park along the Appalachian Trail and the Long Path, and see some of the fascinating geological formations that make this area so beautiful. Rocky trails and many long, sustained hill climbs along the way. Please plan to bring something delicious to share, and we'll have a quick picnic enroute.

    Thanks Peter and everyone for your support and encouragement. I had a wonderful time. Special thanks to David and Raj for carrying the 10 lb. red gorilla and to my friend from Ramsey who unfortunately I can't recall his name. Hope to see everyone soon….without the red gorilla. Thanks again.
