 True, the route has changed
  True, the route has changed a bit. The old route was getting very eroded in places, and had several places with bare rock that could be slippery in wet or snowy conditions and where a lot of trail widening occurred. The new route ia slightly longer (0.15 miles) and safer, but it brings you to the top of Long Mountain well before the Torrey Memorial. The new route is well marked with LP Aqua blazes and does not really require a new map, but it is shown on the new Harriman map that is being produced. Jakob Franke, Chair LP South

great quick hike
Did this on a Sunday and loved it. Snow was on the ground and it was fun. Only thing to watch out for is if it snows, some of the markings are on the rocks. You can still figure the way out but twice had to think about it. Good hike for all levels.
