Event Description

Are you ready for a late spring challenge? Then meet up with other NJYPers at Harriman State Park as we follow a path that will take us past old growth green forests, pristine vistas and beautiful overlooks of lush valleys and distant cities. Together we will explore this vast, beautiful place while getting in a workout. After the hike we may go out for a late lunch and cold drinks so bring cash and get ready to work up an appetite.

As with all hikes you must be in good, athletic shape. This is NOT suitable for beginners.

Directions:
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 1.5 miles and you will see the visitor’s center to the right. There is little parking so you may have to park on the street with other vehicles (that’s not a problem, but just be aware). Carpooling is advised if possible.
