It was different being back to the east coast after my trip to Arizona. It was a nice winter day in New York, where I hiked this relatively short and tranquil hike. I parked on the trailhead on Lake Kanawauke Rd (County Route 106) and took the Victory Trail for a short distance to the intersection of the Ramapo Dunderberg Trail. I headed south on the Ramapo Dunderberg slowly climbing Parker Cabin Mountain, where there are two very nice views here. From there headed down the mountain to the White Bar Trail, which i took to the Triangle Trail, and then back to the Ramapo-Dunderberg and Victory for the return.

  1. Nice review of the hike Heshy, thank you. Just what I need to pick the hike this weekend. I was considering Panther Mountain, which you did a nice job logging, but I understand the parking is an issue now & unfortunately we're tight on time...

  2. Glad to help you pick the hike this weekend!
