Bald Mountain and Doodletown
by huffster on Oct 07, 2012
New York, United States
Hiking | 6.0 miles
This hike is described on NY/NJ trail conference website at this url:http://www.nynjtc.org/hike/bear-mountainharriman-state-parks-0  Our only deviation was at the very end. We hiked down to the waterfall and then cut up to the Cornell Mine trail to return to parking. The hike description on NYNJTC does mention the waterfall, but doesn't seem to include going down and back to the Doodletown roadway.  So our mileage was just under 6 miles. They described it as...

TimpTorne near Jones Point

Jones Point, New York, United States
Hiking | 3.6 miles
This hike was with my wife, daughters and nieces (ages 9, 11, 12 + 13). It was a hot day so it was a little slow. It's got a stretch in the beginning that is fairly steep and had us all sweating pretty well in the 90+ degree weather. Everybody kept going due to the promise of seeing a tunnel, several lookouts over the river, Indian Point and a cave. And of course...

Doodletown Wet Hike
by huffster on Mar 11, 2011
Doodletown (historical), New York, United States
Hiking | 6.2 miles
This hike is very similar to a hike described on NYNJ Trail conference web site called "177E/Doodletown Bridal Path Loop from 9W". I may have changed a couple of things. The spring melt was in full force and there were recent torrential rains. So, it was wet and muddy and there were lots of cascades and some really roaring waterfalls. That coupled with the historic sites along the way made this a...

Beautiful view points of all types here. High up views are beautiful , gorgeous forests along the way are also great.There is water along the way, including a spring at Brien shelter area. Last stop for water is almost at the end of the Red Cross trail after that I did not see any water along the way back to Anthony Wayne recreation.

Hiking | 11.7 miles
Watershed Thursday, May 17, 2012:  Back on the trail after three zero days, and today wasn't a full hiking day because of the long drive from home.  I'm excerpting from my personal journal to save time - will probably do that more often, as I've learned a lesson from the three days off - I've been pushing myself too hard.  Not only will I have to listen to my body more carefully, I'll...

Timp - West Mtn - 1777 return

Tomkins Cove, New York, United States
Hiking | 11.5 miles
This hike was planned as a linear hike and for about 7 miles. But, a "not so funny" thing changed that plan. We parked 1 car at Anthony Wayne, then parked the other on 9W near the trailhead for 1777. We hiked up 1777 to the Jones Trail to Timp-Torne. We followed Timp-Torne trail to The Timp and then up to the West Mountain Shelter. We followed along the ridge West Mountain. The...

hike to nowhere - in the rain

Buckberg, New York, United States
Hiking | 5.4 miles
It wasn't supposed to rain until later in the afternoon. But, it was misty and overcast. We decided to give it a go anyway. It ended up being pretty lousy whether with periods of notable rain. Visibility was poor. We missed the Jones Trail on the way up on 1777 trail. Then we turned back and thought we found it, but managed to get snarled up again. Finally we found our way...
