Overview

Avoid rainy days. Cliff scrambling will get dangerous. Avoid bringing a dog unless she/he is incredibly athletic and has a Help'em Up type harness that you can help with both front and the back side lifting.

Runner Notes

Bring a water filter to replenish your bottles/reservoirs. This trail is with many scrambling opportunities, and possibly more hiking than running.

Description

An eponymous trail from Suffern to Bear Mountain. Going from south to north will grant you a nice finishing place to relax at the Bear Mountain Inn. Expect a long and rocky trail with many scrambling opportunities and some challenging ups and downs the entire length of the trail. At just under 23 miles in length, the full trail is a long and strenuous undertaking, but if you don't want to run the entire trail point to point, there are options to connect to many other trails in Harriman State Park and Bear Mountain State Park to create loop runs.

Flora & Fauna

Deer. Snakes. Ferns. Hawks. Buzzards.
