A new, 3rd edition of our Circuit Hikes in Harriman: 37 Loop Hikes and Trail Runs in Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks guidebook has arrived!

This very popular paperback is a comprehensive guide to 37 loop hikes in the highly visited Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks. This revised edition includes two hikes with significant route changes, and several existing hikes have been updated with the latest trail changes. 

Nine of the loops are suitable for trail runs and there is one approved mountain biking loop. Many chapters offer shorter and longer options, making this guidebook perfect for a wide variety of users, including those new to hiking as well as experienced hikers and trail runners looking to expand their horizons. As with the previous editions, each loop hike chapter features a detailed description, loop hike map and elevation profile, and multiple photos of outstanding views and interesting features. 

Hike routes were selected by author/our Development Director Don Weise, who has more than 25 years of experience leading hikes and runs through the parks. The book was edited by Daniel Chazin and field-checked by volunteers. Maps were designed by Allison Werberg with assistance from Trail Conference cartographer Jeremy Apgar. This edition as designed by graphic designer Nora Porter. 

This guide is perfect for anyone interested in exploring the rich network of trails in these parks, so grab your copy today
