Almost Perpendicular Daters Mountain Sunset Hike

Harriman State Park,
Rockland Co.,
New York

Hiking Trails:
Blue Disc Trail: Blue blaze

Total Time: 0:50 hour
Estimated Distance: 1.6 Miles

Pros: Excellent scramble with fantastic view
Cons: None

Daters Mountain "Almost Perpendicular" is one of my favorite climbs in Harriman. It features an exception view after a good rocky climb. It was a beautiful, hot, early autumn day and I went to do a quick sunset hike after work. I parked int he dead end on Johnstown Road, at the trailhead, and took the Blue Disc Trail from its terminus towards the mountain. I veered off at the rocky part near the the for the alternate path towards the summit view, and then took a short break at the top. I then went back along the trail down and took the same way back.
