Rockland County, NY
Long Path: Blue Blaze
Suffern-Bear Mountain (SBM) Trail: Yellow Blaze
Total Time: 1:45 min
Estimated Distance: 4.2 Miles
We started at the trailhead at the Long Path on Call Hollow Road, and headed up the mountain continuing up the Long Path. This is a gradual but good climb which is very scenic and well-forested. Continued past the woods road, and then continued to the intersection with the SBM Trail, which we took from there up the short scramble to the top of Big Hill, where there is a shelter and a nice view.
Continued down the long path, then took the woods road to another unnamed woods road which leads down to the Second Reservoir. From there took the Woodtown Road Trail to the first reservoir, and then the reservoir access road back to the trailhead where our car was parked.
