Google Maps of Parking:

The temperature was very cold, but much of the snow had melted, especially at the upper areas of the hike more exposed to the sun. We parked at the Long Mountain Trailhead, and took the Long Path up the mountain, taking the historic Fingerboard-Storm King Trail part connecting parts of the Long Path. We enjoyed the sweeping view on the top, and descended down the northern flank. At the bottom of the deep valley, we crossed the brook and then crossed back, and then took the unmarked road through the valley to the Long Path. We then took the Long Path back to our car.
