New York, NY: Southern Harriman Loop

Breath easier in over 50,000 acres of protected forest, located just a short train ride from Manhattan.

Rating

Use public transportation to reach this 16-mile overnight loop that skirts undeveloped lakes, unique boulder formations, open ledges, and a waterfall. Take in views of New York City while keeping your eyes peeled for deer, wild turkey, and if you’re lucky a black bear or timber rattlesnake.
 

To Trailhead

From Manhattan, take a New Jersey Transit train or a Short Line bus to Tuxedo station. No overnight parking is allowed, so if you’re driving pick a different Harriman hike.
