This is a very nice loop passing abandoned iron mines and some great views from Hogencamp Mountain.

Need to Know [Suggest Changes]

Take plenty of water and sunscreen in the summer months, as you'll be out on bald rocks for a good amount of time, and you'll roast. Plenty of insect repellent isn't a bad idea either, as you'll pass a few swamps.

Description [Suggest Changes]

This run starts at the Lake Skannatati Trailhead. Head up the Arden-Surebridge (AS) Trail, passing some of the remnants of Pine Swamp Mine. Make a left down Dunning Trail to head past Pine Swamp and more of the Pine Swamp Mine ruins.

Continue on Dunning past Bowling Rocks (a great lunch spot with nice views) and make a right when you reach Ramapo Dunderberg (R-D) Trail. Take this up Hogencamp Mountain and reward yourself with great views at the top! Soon, you'll pass Ship Rock, and not long after, head down a small scramble to Times Square.

Take another right and pick up the Long Path. Through this section, you'll pass Cape Horn (a giant rock formation) and another abandoned iron mine down the hill. Long Path will take you back to Lake Skannatati and the parking lot.

Flora & Fauna [Suggest Changes]

Many hawks and buzzards can be seen from the bald rocks, and you'll find a deer here and there. Lots and lots of blueberry bushes grow along the way and make for great late summer snacks. Be sure you can identify the correct plants before you go eating berries.

History & Background [Suggest Changes]

There are a few abandoned iron mines along this route. Look for the flooded entrances along the way.
