MAJOR BACKPACKING TRAILS

APPALACHIAN TRAIL

On its way from New Jersey to Connecticut the Appalachian Trail crosses the southeastern part of New York State, traversing some small but rugged mountains, with attractive scenery and many fine views.

Portions of the trail are in Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks, including the very first section of the trail which was completed in 1923. It also crosses the Hudson River via the Bear Mountain Bridge, and passes through Hudson Highlands State Park and Fahnestock State Park.

Camping Regulations: Camping along the Appalachian Trail in this state is generally restricted to shelters and other designated campsites, which are spaced at intervals along the trail. Campfires are allowed only in fire rings and built fireplaces at approved campsites. No permits are required.

For Further Information: Appalachian Trail Conference, P.O. Box 807, Harpers Ferry, WV 25425. This organization publishes the Guide to the Appalachian Trail in New York and New Jersey.
