Long Path - Lake Skanatati

Harriman State Park,
Rockland County,
New York

Total Time: 1:15 Hours
Total Distance: 2 Miles

I had attempted to hike to the Hogencamp Mine on this early autumn day, but I ran out of time on the hike, so only made it 3/4 of the way before I had to turn back. The sky was very clear and the tress had just started changing color. I started at the Long Path at the parking lot off of 7 Lakes Drive at Lake Skanatati, and went along the same trail some 3/4 the the way to the Hogencamp Mine before turning around and taking the same return route.

I took pictures at the end facing Lake Skanatati and then climbed up to Lake Askoti for some more beautiful fall foliage photos.

  1. My husband and I used to fish on Lake Skanatati and we also hiked a trail which went by the Lemon Squeeze rock formation and it also farther on was a fishing lake that we once paid for a key to drive to it. We also took our two children there many times to fish or hike. All of the lakes are beautiful. Such wonderful memories! I remember it all even Lily Pond
