Are you ready for a fun and awesome day outdoors?! Due to the popularity of the first Harriman Challenge, we created a brand new adventure just for you! Come explore this beautiful section of Harriman that will carry us past beautiful lakes, through pristine forests, around giant boulders and a beautiful ridge walk that overlooks a scenic valley. Of course, such an adventure will work up a hunger and thirst, so we will meet for food and warm drinks at Rhodes Tavern afterwards.
The hike is classified as moderately strenuous to strenuous with a lot of uphill and downhill.
Hike is about 8 miles long and we will walk at a moderate pace.
Hike will take 4.5 to 5 hours, depending on how people feel.
As with all hikes you must be in good, athletic shape. This is NOT suitable for beginners.
$5 for the first 5
$10 for the next 6 to 25
$20 at the door
$20 online and at the door.
There are a limited number of Tickets for sale.
Tickets are not mailed, but your name will be kept at the door. All sales are final.
David will be leading this hike. David will not be waiting for late people. In fairness to those who arrive on time, the hike will start on time.
If the group size is larger than 10, we are going to look for a volunteer to act as a sweeper. Sweepers will walk at the end of the hike line and will make sure the group stays together.
What to bring:
Hiking boots and 3 liters of water (required).
A light snack, especially if you do not plan to eat with the group afterwards.
We recommend wearing non cotton clothing layers (especially the base layer). Cotton holds in moisture and will make you feel cold if you start sweating. This is especially important in cooler weather.
Heavy precipitation will cancel this hike; drizzle will not. Please check your inbox for updates. Tickets will be refunded.
Head north on I-287. Follow I-287 until the NY State border and follow the signs for I-87 North (also known as NY State Thruway). Take exit 15A and make a left at the end of the exit ramp onto RT 17 North. Follow that for 2.5 miles and make a right turn onto Seven Lakes Drive. Follow Seven Lakes Drive for 0.8 miles and make a left turn (just after the bridge you travel under) onto Johnsonton Rd. Follow that to the end where there will be a parking circle. Carpooling is advised if possible.
