December 2nd, 2023 | The Revolutionary Outlaw Hike @ Claudius Smith Den Loop

We’ll start with Almost Perpendicular, a popular Harriman trail named after a former rock-climbing area. This trail offers excellent views to the west and south. We’ll continue through Elbow Brush rock formation to Claudius Smith Den, where the outlaw Claudius Smith, who lived in the early 1700s, held up with his outlaw gang. We’ll explore the caves and rock outcroppings before returning to the trailhead.
As we will be covering some miles, please consider your child(ren)’s hiking capacity before deciding to attend. 

$30 per family

All hikes take place from
10 AM to 2 PM


We would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
