The trail system of the Southern Taconics features two parallel trails running north-south:  the 21.4-mile South Taconic Trail following the western range and escarpment, and a 16.5-mile section of the Appalachian Trail on the eastern range.  

East of the Harlem Valley of New York and west of the Housatonic Valley of Connecticut and Massachusetts rise the Taconics.  They extend north through western Massachusetts and eastern New York into southwestern Vermont, where they reach their highest elevations.  The name "Taconic" is a modern rendering of a Native American name variously spelled Taghkannock and Taghkanic.
