Map of Route:

This was another beautiful September day. This is a short hike but one of my favorites in Harriman. I was going to park at the Ramapo Dunderberg Trailhead in the valley on County Route 106/Kanawauke Road. The small roadside parking area was already full, so I drove further up and parked on the side of the road near the marsh. I took the road down for a little bit, and then took the Ramapo-Dunderberg Trail steeply up the mountain. I took the spur to the Tom Jones, and then descended the mountain. At the Victor Trail intersection, I took that trail back to the road which I walked on, next to the marsh, until getting to my car.
