Needs a location
Join us for a moderate mid-winter loop hike up through the far western section of Harriman State Park. We'll climb Almost Perpendicular, a steep volcanic torne, then hike north through Elbow Brush to the Claudius Smith Den area, a famous hideout for a notorious Revolutionary War renegade. Some steep climbs and descents, and beautiful views along very rocky terrain.
