Please join us for a moderate-to-strenuous point-to-point hike along the Appalachian Trail in the fabulously beautiful Harriman State Park. Beautiful woodlands and many scenic overlooks. Rocky trails and several steep hill climbs with rock scrambling along the way. Microspikes and/or snowshoes are required, depending on conditions.

Difficulty: Moderate-to-Strenuous. Several steep hill climbs along rocky terrain. Due to limited sunlight hours, you must be able to maintain a 1.5 - 2 mph pace for this hike.

Distance: Two options: 7 or 11 miles

Estimated Time: 4 - 8 hours

Significant Danger: We will cross Palisades Parkway by foot.
