Carr Pond Mountain

Harriman State Park,
Orange County
New York

White Bar Trail: White Blaze

Total Time: 1.5 Hours
Total Distance: 2 Miles

Hiking Partner:
Sruli Rosenberg

This was another very cold day. The lakes still weren't fully frozen so we had to opt for a regular hike. We started on the trailhead parking on County Rt. 106 by the bend at the White Bar Trailhead. Climbed the small ridge and then descended, and then climbed to the top of Carr Pond Mountain and the viewpoint. Continued descending on the trail, and then intended to take the unmarked trail along the stream back to the road, but the trail was well overgrown and nowhere to be found, so instead just bushwacked up the frozen stream back to the road and back to the car.
