Nice moderate hike
I did this hike on November 13, 2016. It was very easy to follow and scenic throughout. Thanks for the great hike description. For a virtual tour of this hike please visit: https://scenesfromthetrail.com/2016/11/14/hogencamp-mountain-harriman-st...

This hike made a nice showshoe. Only a couple of tricky spots where the snow was covering icy rocks. We've hiked in this area several times. We were glad someone had gone on the R-D trail before us, leaving tracks though. It was a little harder for us to find blazes on it during the winter.

Hike has been edited to eliminate erroneous name
After checking the matter a little further, I determined that the swamp to the left of Dunning Trail is not in fact the Pine Swamp. The hike description has been edited so that it now reads that the trail "passes a swamp on the left." The description is now entirely correct.

Okay, now I understand what you are talking about. There is indeed a swamp to your left as you head south along the Dunning Trail after passing the Hogencamp Mine. The only question is the name of this swamp. I have always assumed that it is an extension of the Pine Swamp located further north, near the Pine Swamp Mine, and I therefore said in my hike description that you pass the Pine Swamp on the left as you proceed south along the Dunning Trail. However, now that you have raised the question, I am not sure that my assumption as to the name of the swamp is correct. I will check and see. However, this only affects the name of the swamp. The hike description, including Paragraph 6, is correct. Paragraph 6 is an integral part of the description and is entirely accurate, with the possible exception of the name of the swamp.

Because after the
Because after the intersection of the LP and Dunning trails where the hike follows the Dunning south to Hogencamp, the Pine Swamp would be behind you to the north, the opposite direction. To make a left onto Dunning and have Pine Swamp on your left, you would be turning off the A-SB trail which is not part of this hike description.
