Harriman: Lemon Squeezer / Times Square

  • May 18, 2013 · 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.

    Not a very strenuous hike as posted - although I do understand everyone is at different levels. Good time regardless.
