Tuxedo Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Sweeping viewpoints, Revolutionary-era history, utility rights-of- way, and diverse forests make this a fine sampler of Harriman State Park. What it lacks in elevation and wilderness compared to the Catskills, Harriman State Park makes up for in accessibility and proximity to the city. It can be said that hiking in the New York metropolitan area began here. What began as railroad magnate Edward Harriman’s Arden estate is now approximately 47,000 acres of Orange and Rockland counties. Here, in New York’s second-largest state park, the first section of the Appalachian Trail was cleared and blazed. Many residents of suburb and city alike came here to go on their first real hike. Trail-building activities of various hiking clubs started here in the 1920s and were documented in Raymond Torrey’s New York Post columns. This later led to the reestablishment of the New York–New Jersey Trail Conference."
