Hogencamp Mountain

Harriman State Park
Orange County
New York

Total Time:
1:30 Hours
Total Distance: 3 Miles

Long Path (Green Blaze)

Back in my home terrain and back in the snow. This was a relatively easy hike as I was short of time and there was lots of snow. I have done this trail numerous times - its one of my most popular easy ones in Harriman. Took the Long Path from the Lake Skannatati parking area off of Seven Lakes Drive and headed west along the shore of Lake Skannatati all the way to the intersection of the Dunning Trail, and continued up to the Notch in Hogencamp Mountain. Got a view from above of the mine in the snow, and then headed back the same route. It was strange to be back in the wooded and snowy terrain, in contrast to Arizona where I went in my short sleeves.
