Join us for a strenuous hike in Harriman State Park. We will hike in the southwestern section of the park along the Seven Hills Trail, and pass through the Pine Meadow Lake area. Time permitting, we will head back via the Raccoon Brook Hills region on our return. There are some beautiful cliff areas, as well as a number of vista points, and some very swiftly running streams through this area. Rocky trails and many long, sustained hill climbs along the way.
Difficulty: Strenuous. Many long sustained hill climbs along rocky terrain. Some very steep descents. Hiking poles are strongly recommended.
Distance: 8 - 10 miles
Estimated Time: 5 - 7 hours
