A revised, comprehensive guide to 37 loop hikes in popular Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks.
A very popular best-seller, offering a comprehensive guide to loop hikes throughout these two highly-visited parks, this revised second edition adds two new circuit hikes to great destinations in the parks, and several existing hikes have been updated with trail changes. Nine of the loops are suitable for trail runs and there is one approved mountain biking loop. This guidebook is perfect for anyone interested in exploring the rich network of trails in Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks, including those new to hiking as well as experienced hikers looking to expand their horizons. The hike routes were selected by author Don Weise after more than 25 years of leading hikes and runs through the parks, and the book was edited by Daniel Chazin and field checked by a team of volunteers.
