Elk Pen Parking Lot at Harriman State Park

  • 1010 Arden Valley Road

Tips from the community

Part of Harriman State Park, from this trailhead you can explore a number of different paths. You will start on a small portion of the Appalachian Trail that leads to Island Pond, a great spot to relax and enjoy the view. You can also try a smaller "Lemon Squeezer" portion of the trail that goes through two very large rock formations. If you're really adventurous you can climb through the cave in the rocks, but I heard it was pretty cold and damp!

  • 8 Great Hikes in the Hudson Valley

    One of the easiest ways to get out and enjoy nature is with a great hike! This list consists of some of my favorite trails in the lower Hudson Valley. From Anthony's Nose and Camp Smith to the Lemon Squeezer, there's something on this list for all levels. Plus, all of these hikes are within two hours from New York City. Don't have a car? No worries, some of these can even be accessed using Metro North!
