Harriman Trails: A Guide and History 4th Edition (2018) Now Available
Harriman Trails: A Guide and History 4th Edition, 2018


The revised 4th edition of our Harriman Trails guidebook includes significant updates.

A completely revised 4th edition of the Harriman Trails: A Guide and History book, our comprehensive guidebook to hundreds of miles of trails in Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks, is now available.  Last published in 2010, it has been significantly updated for 2018 to include the new route of the Appalachian Trail over Bear and West Mountains, the extension of the Fawn Trail, and relocations of sections of the Long Path, the Tuxedo-Mt. Ivy Trail and the Ramapo-Dunderberg Trail.

A special feature of this new edition is the inclusion of many historic photos which appeared in the first edition of the book but could not be found for use in the 2010 edition. These photos have been rediscovered and are once again included in the book. Additional photos of scenic features have been added, and each trail description has been carefully reviewed and updated as needed. The historical information on the trails, originally prepared by the late Bill Myles, has been updated by Daniel Chazin to include changes in the trails that have taken place since the publication of the last edition.

At only $19.95 ($14.96 for members), this book is a must-have for exploring the vast network of trails in Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks.  This paperback is now available, so shop online, visit our headquarters, or look for them at an outdoor retailer near you.
