Don't be disappointed by the views

Ramapo Torne
This makes a nice winter hike. Nice views from the Torne and beyond. Trails were well blazed and easy to follow, even with the snow covering some of the blazes. One icy steep spot where microspikes were critical. The last time we tried this hike, we encountered a brush fire, and had to turn around.   Some photos: http://agiletrekker.blogspot.com/2014/03/seven-hillshtsreeves-brook-trai...

New Harriman-Bear Mountains Maps Available Now!

Thanks for your hike report.  It's good to hear you enjoyed this great hike.

There have certainly been several changes on the maps since the 2003 9th edition (we're now up to the 13th edition!).  The new 2010 maps are now available on our online store (click here) and will soon be available at our retail partner stores.  I would certainly suggest getting a copy!
