The revised 18th edition of our Harriman-Bear Mountain Trails map set is available in print and digital formats!

The revised 18th edition of our Harriman-Bear Mountain Trails map set is a must-have for enjoying and exploring the large network of trails in New York's Harriman and Bear Mountain state parks.  This two-map set covers more than 230 miles of marked trail, including the Appalachian Trail and Long Path, and features trail mileage numbers and detailed elevation contour lines.

The 18th edition includes the latest trail updates, such as a relocation of the Ramapo-Dunderberg Trail near The Timp, a newly marked side trail to Tom Jones Shelter, the addition of recently acquired parklands, additional viewpoint stars along the Suffern-Bear Mountain Trail and other popular trails, and improvements to trail mileage numbers to make them even more useful for trip planning and navigation.  Additional adjustments throughout the maps make this 18th edition of Harriman-Bear Mountain Trails our most accurate map yet of these popular parks.

Parks shown on the maps include Bear Mountain State Park, Harriman State Park, Dater Mountain Nature Park, Kakiat Park, Cheesecote Mountain Park, and Samuel G. Fisher Mt. Ivy Environmental Park.  All maps include parking areas and public transportation information, viewpoints and other points of interest, UTM gridlines, and tables of detailed trail information.

The maps are available in print format, in vibrant color on our popular waterproof, tear-resistant Tyvek; shop online, visit our headquarters, or look for them at an outdoor retailer near you.  In addition, they are also available in digital format on Apple and Android devices through the Avenza Maps app, including as a combined app map that combines the two section maps:  Combined Harriman-Bear Mountain Map, Map 118 (southern section), Map 119 (northern section).

At only $10.95 ($8.21 for members), this map set is your guide to the extensive network of outstanding trails in Harriman and Bear Mountain state parks.
