Hiking across Harriman and back
On Sunday, I hiked with the Ramblers from the west side of Harriman State Park to the east and back again, for a total of 16 miles. We lucked out with beautiful weather, but it was still a tough hike.
While much of the hike was flat, there were several hilly sections, particularly in the second half of the hike. There was still some snow on the ground, and in many places it had turned to a sheet of ice. Other parts of the trail were perfectly bare, and, as always, rocky, making both wearing microspikes and not wearing microspikes bad choices. Either you slipped on the snow or dulled your spikes on the rocks!
Nevertheless, it was a good hike, and a very good workout.
