Many of our members are involved in maintaining various hiking trails throughout the Palisades Interstate Park. In cooperation with the New York – New Jersey Trail Conference, our club is responsible for over 35 miles of trails in Harriman State Park.

Our organization firmly believes that we must actively participate in the preservation of the trail system that we all enjoy.


There are more than forty marked hiking trails (225 miles total) in Harriman, and another 57 unmarked trails and woods road (103 miles, foot traffic only). Some of the better known trails include:

  • Appalachian trail, 18.8 miles (30.3 km) are within the park
  • Blue Disc Trail, 2.8 miles (4.5 km)
  • Long Path, 25 miles (40 km) are within the park
  • Pine Meadow trail, 5.5 miles (8.9 km)
  • Ramapo-Dunderberg trail, 21 miles (34 km)
  • Red Cross trail, 7.9 miles (12.7 km)
  • Seven Hills trail, 6.7 miles (10.8 km)
  • Suffern-Bear Mountain trail, 23.5 miles (37.8 km)
  • Timp-Torne trail, 11.2 miles (18.0 km)
  • Tuxedo-Mt Ivy trail, 8.2 miles (13.2 km)
  • White Bar trail, 7.4 miles (11.9 km)

In addition to the hiking trails there are a number of horse trails in the southeastern portion of the park and a mountain bike trail at the Anthony Wayne Recreation Area in the northeast of the park. In winter some of the trails are open for cross-country skiing.
