Overview

This is a scenic and challenging Harriman run. It starts slow and gradually climbs to Russian Bear and Ramapo Torne, where the best views are. Then the route turns north and hits its toughest section, with several consecutive climbs and descents. There are plenty of views still, before it slowly descends to the pretty Lake Sebago. It even has a good camping option, making it a great 1-night backpack.

Description

From Tuxedo take the Kakiat Trail (white) down across Seven Lakes Drive. Continue on the Kakiat Trail, cross the creek, and then take a right on the Hillburn-Torne-Sebago trail (orange trail). Follow the Hillburn-Torne-Sebago to Russian Bear, and then to Ramapo Torne. This trail should not be hard for most runners, as footing is good and it is well-marked.

Backtrack a little and take a left on the well-marked Seven Hills Trail (blue) all the way back across the creek and up to Diamond Mountain. This trail is one of the most challenging but beautiful trails in Harriman. As you might guess from the name, it is very hilly. Several of the ascents are scrambles and involve using your hands. The ascents and descents come one after another, making it challenging to keep a good pace or rhythm. With that said, the views are excellent on all of the peaks and it is worth all the effort.

This is the most challenging, but also the most scenic, part of the run. There are many ups and downs with a few easy scrambles.

Once you reach Diamond Mountain on the Seven Hills Trail, take a left on the Hillburn-Torne-Sebago trail which takes you down to Lake Sebago. Then take the red trail up to Dutch Doctor. Up to this point it is a 12-13 mile run. There is a lean-to and camping sites at Dutch Doctor. From Dutch Doctor, take the Tuxedo - Mt. Ivy Trail out to Tuxedo (3-4 miles). The Tuxedo - Mt. Ivy trail is a moderate trail, with uneven ground and some rocks but not it is not challenging.

Tough trail run. Very muddy on the day I went with parts of trail completely submerged. A lot of non-running rock scrambles 14mi
