Harriman State Park Iron Mines Loop

Harriman State Park: Iron Mines Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Clear mountain lakes, forest-covered peaks, rocky outcroppings, and a summit with a spectacular view—it’s all worth the extra effort Harriman demands. What does the quintessential downstate New York hike look like?

Look no further than Harriman State Park, where this loop—a relatively easy hike compared to the rest of the park—takes you through areas of mixed forest, huge boulders, and exposed faces of granite and metamorphic gneiss. The payoff comes at the top of Pine Swamp Mountain, a low peak by Adirondack standards but with a sweeping view of the surrounding Hudson Highlands. You’ll be glad you braved the vigorous ascent when you arrive at the top."
