“Harriman State Park is full of wonders”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Couple years since my previous review and Harriman State Park never cease to amaze.
Finally did the entire section of Appalachian Trail from Arden to Bear Mountain. Actually started from Harriman train station and finished at Manitu train station - didn't even need a car.
Got to spend couple nights in a tent, all by myself - so peaceful and beautiful surroundings were didn't even want to leave.
Lots to see on the way - from Agony Grind to Bear Mountain. Adding few photos - picture is worth a thousand words.
Also adding some photos from my 2012 overnight trip in Southern Harriman.

“Great range”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

A great park with tons of variety in trails. The walk around the lake went from an easy flat walk to a strenuous hike over rocks and boulders. The scenery is quite nice and includes close ups of the lakes and views over the area. Take a trail map ahead of time though as it is quite expansive and some trails are fairly difficult. Go past the huge lines of cars near the entrances and find a spot easily a little further in. Great walk with a family or four legged friend.
