Appalachian Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Trade the concrete canyons of Manhattan for the lush slopes around Greenwood Lake. As one of the most spectacular and challenging treks in the greater New York area, this short but demanding piece of the Appalachian Trail is ideally suited for seasoned hikers who crave views."
