Harriman – Bear Mountain Trail Maps

Located in Rockland and Orange counties just north of the NY/NJ border, Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks are one of the most popular hiking destinations in the New York City metropolitan area.  Harriman State Park, the second-largest state park in New York, has over 200 miles of marked trails (and plenty more miles of unmarked paths and roads).  Bear Mountain is an impressive mountain along the Hudson River, and it is also the location of the initial section of the Appalachian Trail that opened in 1923.

Right now, I’m working on an update to this map set from the previous edition.  I haven’t checked out many of the trails myself, so I would definitely like to go explore Harriman and Bear Mountain sometime.
