Lake Sebago Frozen Lake Loop

Harriman State Park,
Rockland Co.,
New York

Hiking Trails:
Tuxedo-Mt. Ivy Trail: Red blaze
Triangle Trail: Yellow

Total Time: 2:30 hour
Estimated Distance: 4.6 Miles

Pros: Large and beautiful lake, easy conditions
Cons: None

There was a major warming trend, which brought the temperatures to the mid-50's, yet the lakes in Harriman were still frozen solid despite the weather. This provided an opportunity to hike on the frozen lakes in warm weather. Towards the end of the hike it got so warm that I took my coat off, and I met two guy on the lake without their shirts.

I parked at Sebago Boat Launch, and walked north to the end of the lake, and climbed up to the road leading south to the camp area. I was surprised to find all the cabins here unused and entirely abandoned. I then climbed down, with down to the southern end of the lake, and then took the Tuxedo-Mt. Ivy Trail, to the Triangle Trail, past the Dutch Doctor Shelter, and then to the northern spur of the lake. I then headed back down through the notch and then back to the parking area.
