Central Park

Central Park Professional Review and Guide

"Marvel at how wild and secluded Harriman State Park feels, with almost 50,000 acres of forestland, all within an hour of New York City. Backpackers will find nearly limitless opportunities to explore and perfect their backcountry craft in this expansive and beautiful park.

From the Anthony Wayne Recreation Area on the Palisades, this route takes you up onto the ridgeline of West Mountain, where you’ll enjoy views of the park, Hudson River, and Bear Mountain before reaching a shelter that offers a splendid southward vista. On a clear evening, New York City can just be made out on the horizon."
