Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"On this overnight hike, you will cross New York’s Harriman State Park. The park was conceived by Edward Harriman, who made his fortune in railroads and dreamed of creating a park in this area. After his death, his widow helped to make the dream a reality. She donated 10,000 acres to the state for use as a park with the condition that New York abandon plans to build a prison on lands it had acquired around Bear Mountain.

The state agreed, and Bear Mountain and Harriman State Parks were born. The parks are also the site of the first section of pathway built (in 1923) specifically for the A.T. As you cross Bear, West, Black, Letterrock, Fingerboard, Island Pond, and Green Pond Mountains, you will find many fine views along the way."
