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.
$5 for the first 5
$10 for the next 6 to 25

The hike is classified as moderately strenuous with a lot of uphill and downhill.
The total length of the hike will be about 7.5 miles long and we will walk at a moderate pace.
The hike should take about 4 to 4.5 hours, depending on how people feel.
As with all hikes you must be in good, athletic shape. This is NOT suitable for beginners.
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.
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.

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.
