Fawn Trail Extended Through Harriman-Bear Mountain

The Fawn Trail in Harriman-Bear Mountain State Parks has been extended to continue from its former terminus at the Appalachian Trail. It now connects with and follows a section of the Doodletown Bridle Path, continuing eastward to the Suffern-Bear Mountain Trail. The Fawn Trail, now 1.5 miles in length, provides a direct connection from the Anthony Wayne north parking lot to the Suffern-Bear Mountain Trail, and thereby also provides more choices for loop hikes in the area. The Fawn Trail includes some hills, though without excessively steep inclines or rock climbing, and is thus less severe and provides a less challenging hike than most other trails in the vicinity.
