“Loop trail with some fun rock scrambles and stream crossings, and accessible via public transportation.”— Rory Segura
After another 3/4 of a mile, shortly after crossing a shallow creek, the blue-blazed Victory Trail joins from the east, but continue on the red blazed trail heading north (it can be confusing here as the Red Trail is partially obscured by brush). Follow the Red Trail for the next 1.5 miles to the top of Parker Cabin Mountain, there are several rock scrambles and creeks along the way. There are beautiful views of Harriman State Park and Lake Skenonto to the south at the top of the mountain, so this is a good place to rest and have a meal. Continue along the Red Trail until you reach the intersection with the Triangle Trail (yellow blazed).
Follow the Yellow Trail to the right (east). You'll descend some rock scrambles down to Lake Skenonto with a view point of the lake on the south end. Continue along the Yellow Trail until it ends at the White Bar Trail. Follow the White Bar Trail for about 1/4 of a mile until it meets up with the Red Trail again. Take the Red Trail going west (the intersection is confusing, follow the White Bar Trail until you see the red blazes and then double back along the Red Trail).
Continue along the Red Trail with more rock scrambles and stream crossings. After about 1.5 miles you'll reach Claudius Smith Den with a view point to the north. After another half a mile the two arms of the Red Trail will meet, continue heading west along the trail you followed in the beginning. The trail provides an interesting run with similar elevation gain in either direction.
