Pine Swamp Mountain

New Years Hike
Harriman State Park,
Orange County
New York

Arden-Surebridge (A-SB) Trail: Red Blaze

Total Time: 0.5 Hours
Total Distance: 0.7 Miles

I was off from work on New Years, and although I didn't have much time, I figured I would catch a quick hike up the mountain. It had just snowed the day before about 3 inches, so the snow was fresh. I climbed up the A-SB trail from the trailhead parking area off 7 Lakes Drive at Lake Skanatati. Got a nice view with the snow on the top of Pine Swamp Mountain, and then reversed and take the same route back.
